    I have a folder that has movie/videos and pictures from internet.This folder is setting ''Forced Folder'' in Sandboxie.

    But this videos playing (with KMPlayer) outside the sandbox.
    KMPlayer using Svchost.So,can not sandboxed.

    Also Windows Picture and Fax Viewer is opening outside sandbox.

    If videos and pictures has embedded malicious code,this is not dangerous?
    Or,some malicious things can use this method.

    I asked this to SBIE forum,but did not get any useful unswer for solution.

    Am i thinking wrong?

    Create a seperate sandbox and disable the Player accessing the internet using your firewall (if you dont want this player sandbox connecting out). Then set the sandbox to No outgoing internet, under SB restrictions. I have seperate sandboxes for all my media players. It is much easier & you get a tighter config creating an individual sandbox for each application. If your forced folder has no internet rights, when the player tries to connect out it will trigger an error ... Sandboxie will then close it. Might be what's happening.
