    What does "Not Sandboxed" mean???


    So its not bad enough I am still getting AOL taking pictures of my screen. I am getting a big blackpage that shows up on my screen that says NOT SANDBOXED then closes. I am getting it more and more often. Someone please tell me how to get rid of it.

    Download AdwCleaner from Malwarebytes And then SuperAntiSpyware Free version, run them both separately. Links Below.
    If that does not fix your problem, and if your running Avast ....remove it, and run those two programs again.

    Old Mike 65 you are a GENIUS!!!!!! I ran Maleware Bytes and it said no problems, ran Avast found 3 things, went back on AOL and the No Sandbox popped right back up. I downloaded the Super Anti spyware Free edition and it found 739 problems. It deleted them all. So far no more No Sandboxes!!! So Maleware Bytes is worthless??? How long is the free trial of Super Anti spyware? If I buy itfor$19.99 isit mine or do I have to pay for it every year??? Thanks again!

    Glad it solved your issue. SuperAntispyware Free edition is free for as long as you want. The Free edition does not include real-time blocking or scheduled scanning.

    Running Browsers Inside Sandbox
    This page explains how to run your Internet browser inside the sandbox. Surfing the Internet with a sandboxed browser is the same as normal, with the benefit that any malicious files you inadvertently download cannot do damage your real computer. You can also create a desktop shortcut to run the browser inside the sandbox on future occasions. The following image shows how a 'virtual' shortcut will appear on your desktop:

    What version of Avast do you have installed, paid or free ?
    Why do you have AOL still installed, I thought you agreed to remove it 100% when you
    had problems before ?

    I think she tried to remove it, Bob, but IIRC, it kept coming back.

    The only solution I see is to search the Registry for any and everything AOL and delete the key. That would be a huge undertaking; a clean install would probably be better.

    We could use Revo Pro 30 day trial and use the forced uninstall to remove it.
