Prevx safe online conflict with Sandboxie

Post by Guest on 26/4/2010, 10:21

Just for giggles,I downloaded a copy of Prevx 3 with safe on line,using a key that had been given to me.
At first I thought,em..Light real time protection,that eliminates the need for on-demands,while adding a layer of real time protection for my browser!!

I uninstalled KeyScrambler free,as being redundant,and fired up my sandboxed Firefox.


Nothing happened!!
When I opened Sandboxie control,I found all of the normal entries,along with Firefox,that right in front of my eyes shutdown!!!


The upshot was a Google and Sandboxie Forums search,that said:
1: known issue.
2.There is a workaround that involves "disabling" or at least weakening Sandboxie protection.

As Amy Winehouse says,I say: No!,No,No!

the interesting thing is even with "safe online" (the alleged culprit) disabled,i cant get prevx 3 to work in even a default sandbox.

So,Prevx and I have gone our separate ways.
Surprising is more Sandboxie/Prevx users have not noted this problem

I think I remember reading somewhere on Wilders that there was a known conflict with Sandboxie. That was some time ago, and I thought Prevx had fixed it?

I can try to reproduce the conflict for you in my VM if you like. I too have tried running Prevx in the past, and it's very light in real-time. However, with my security setup/approach, I can't see why I would need this type of product running in real-time.

Also, I'm pretty sure Prevx suffers from the same issues as Hitman Pro with the right click scanning etc. Prevx also does not scan archives etc. And remember that Hitman Pro includes Prevx's engine in its scan cloud. Hence why I've stuck with Hitman Pro on-demand.

Okay, presumed conflict confirmed in freshly installed Windows XP, 32-bit.

Opening a sandboxed Firefox leads to Firefox crashing and shutting down spontaneously.

By the way, have you tried installing the version of Prevx without SafeOnline? I think it's this one:
http://info.prevx.com/downloadcsi.asp

As opposed to this one:
http://info.prevx.com/downloadsafeonline.asp

EDIT: okay, never mind - both versions crash for me. Wow, didn't realise Prevx was in total conflict with Sandboxie!

Right,I know with the second version you list,completely disabling "safe online" made no difference.

Any news on HitManPro running sandboxed again?

3.5.5 Build97 still showing "0" files scanned if ran sandboxed.

Thanks for testing Prevx,by the way.

No, Hitman Pro's lead developer said he would have a look at it several months ago. Looks like he also gave up several months ago haha.

By the way, what's wrong with running Hitman Pro on the REAL system? It doesn't install much at all, and is a pure on-demand application which does not run extra services etc.

Nothing,In fact that is what I have been doing since uninstaling Avira 10 without guard.
Just getting to be a fanatic I guess.
