    Did you reboot your machine after uninstalling? If not, try rebooting.

    It was a month ago or so when I uninstalled. I dont remember if I did reboot immidiately after the uninstall or not (unless it was prompted) But I have rebooted several times since then.

    Whenever I have similar problems, I do a thorough cleanup after removing the app. So I suggest you first use Win's Search for any files on your C-drive with that name or the author's name (SoftSphere?). Then likewise, use RegEdit to search the registry for any residual entries with those names. If you find any left-over garbage, I'm sure you know what to do with it. ;)

    That's why I use the combination : "Add/Remove Programs + Total Uninstall + Registry Cleaner" to solve such problems, because most applications have a bad uninstaller.

    OK, I'm glad I could help. BTW, what are the reasons you didn't like product?

    I did not find anything wrong with your product. I just dont have a need (atleast for now) for such advanced sandboxing program. I was merely testing it to see what all was talking about :)
    At the time I was testing several sandbox programs. I do test many programs and sometimes recommend fine tools for friends in need. If I ever do need a sandbox program I will surely give Defencewall another go.
