    I Was on the Local Movie Theatre Website, I've opened up the sandboxie browser multiple times when going to the AMC local movie theatre site..now, for Some Reason it Renamed the Default Sandboxie Icon to the local movie theatre name. What should I do? Should I right click on the sandboxie icon and rename it to Sandboxie? Since right now, it says "amc del"? (as shown on the photo below)

    If you right-click on that icon and select properties where does it say the shortcut is pointing to when you look under 'target' ?

    If you double-click the icon and it opens up your browser sandboxed okay, then renaming the icon shouldn't be a problem.

    Thank you I will try doing that. Did this happen because I was opening up many browsers using sandboxie?

    It is I think a Windows thing, I doubt Sandboxie can control if Windows goes heywire that it can control how your icons change.

    I do have experienced some hacking attempts from a chat porn site by asking if i want to update my Sandboxie, yes or no. Needless to say the correct way to respond is to delete the sandbox. I have never known Sandboxie asking if it needs to be updated like that.

    Maybe the OP should take a look at this thread.
