    I'm test driving K-Melon at the moment and it's lightening fast. Needless to say, I like it so far. I'd like to be able to run it in Sandboxie but so far, I haven't suceeded. Each time I try, I get a 'Could not invoke program' pop-up. Has anyone else had this problem and is there a way around it?

    Hmm...it may be fast but I downloaded a trojan with it which slipped by Avira Premium and, luckily for me...BOClean caught.

    No wonder I couldn't run it in Sandboxie; it replaced FF as my default browser in the sandbox without my knowledge or consent.

    Not only that, but it disrupted my wireless setup which kept cutting out...the trojan I guess.

    It's off my system and good riddance.

    It won't be coming back anytime soon. :mad: :mad: :mad:

    I'm wondering now if it did anymore damage.

    Have to check.

    Take a bow BOClean!

    05/06/2007 03:18:29: ZLOB256 MALWARE STOPPED by BOCLEAN!
    Trojan horse was found in memory.
    C:\PROGRAM FILES\K-MELEON\SETDEFAULT.EXE contained the trojan.
    Active trojan horse WAS shut down. System now safe.

    Where did you download K-melon from? Do not post a live d/l or direct link to d/l or to any site except possibly the original Authors. But would appreciate the site name out of curiosity.

    Edit;Just visited the K-Melon site. It is open source. My guess is you d/l`d it else where and that is the source of the trojan. Or a FP by BoClean

    Wouldn't like to say out loud but I got it from a major site for geeks.

    ;)

    Am not familiar with your particular error, but the easiest way I've found to run my K-mel sandboxed is to alter shortcut's target to:
    "D:\Program Files\Sandboxie\Start.exe" "D:\Program Files\K-Meleon\k-meleon.exe"
    Of course, altering paths as necessary, depending where your SandboxIE, K-Mel proggies reside.

    I always download from the official home website, that is a good habit.

    Well. maybe I'll give it another go...I do like the browser. This time I d/led it from the official site and checked with the Dr. Web plug-in for FF.

    Hope it doesn't thrash my internet connection.

    :doubt:

    The real test will be if BoClean ALERTS again. Let us know.

    All is well...no zlobs this time. It's really fast on my system and lighter than FF minimised.

    I have a problem with it though, I can only get the bare minimun of features to work in Sandboxie and that's a pain. Maybe if I reboot things will work a little better.

    I'm going to try that now.

    Cheers guys.

    Erik, bedankt!
