I placed this question on another Forum, but after over 65 views got no answer.
Can somebody please explain the following download phenomena ? Never had it before in many downloads, only in this case.
Using Firefox Sandboxied as I always do, I downloaded the latest version of A-Squared Emergency Kit - 1.0.012. No problems, it downloaded in the Sandbox and I clicked Recover in the normal way. It went to my Desktop as do all my downloads.
I then exactly followed the Wizard procedure and it installed with no problems. Updated it and ready for off - did a scan - all like I have done many times before. The A-Squared shortcut icon was there, all OK.
BUT ! When I looked for the Desktop Sandboxie shortcut icon, it had been replaced by the A-Squared icon ! On clicking it, I got A-Squared open NOT Sandboxie.
It took a lot of jiggling and slight panic to find out how I could get my Sandboxie Desktop shortcut icon back. Luckily I found a Sandboxie Quickstart icon in one of my files. Right clicking, I created a shortcut and sent it to me Desktop. All is now back to normal.
How on Earth did this happen ? My download procedure was the same as it always has been, yet somehow A-Squared hijacked my Desktop Sandboxie icon.
If I had not found that icon in my file, I would not know how to get a Sandboxie icon back on my Desktop.
