    Thanks for the info. In CC, Cleaner, Applications, Utilities, I unchecked Sandboxie.

    I have sandboxie and Ccleaner but no problem with Ccleaner deleting sandboxes or files from the sandbox main file possibly because I Erase the marked file inside the USER_NAME folder with all the info accumulated from surfing right after surfing. SANDBOX/USER_NAME The only 2 files that should be in the user folder are Desktop.ini and Don't use.text

    I have not had the problem of CCleaner deleting my Sandboxes, but on the other hand Sandboxie does not show up under Cleaner>Applications>Utilities.

    Any idea why not? I have 3.06.1433 which I believe is the latest.

    Edit: Its not the latest. Latest is 3.07.1457 I guess that why I have not lost sandboxes.

    I had thought that once you are done with your browsing session in your Sandboxed browser [either Firefox or IE], all the contents of the Sandbox were literally erased from your System leaving no traces at all.

    After reading what has been posted here, it looks that I have been mistaken then.

    If now CC includes SBIE among its program list for cleaning, I will start using it to make sure that absolutely no leftovers remain in the Sandbox.

    Hi Carlos, if you delete the contents of your sandboxes on closing,
    then this new CCleaner setting will not affect you at all. This setting
    will erase sandboxes that are saved, when they are protected from
    removal or deletion by using the "delete invocation" SBIE setting.
    If you don't use the"delete invocation" setting, then this holds true:
    "once you are done with your browsing session in your Sandboxed
    browser [either Firefox or IE], all the contents of the Sandbox were
    literally erased from your System leaving no traces at all".
