Many users including me have found that the new version of Keyscrambler Personal - Free edition 3.1.0.0 for IE, Firefox and now Chrome does not work when the browsers are opened with Sandboxie. This easy fix is how to cure the  problem.

 

Download Keyscrambler Personal - Free to your Desktop from http://www.qfxsoftware.com/download.htm or some other reputable site. Do not download with a Sandboxied browser. 

 

Go through the wizard and select your preferences. I suggest you choose the tray icon and for the program to start with Windows opening. You will have to reboot when finished.

 

KS will then work perfectly with IE, Firefox and Chrome unsandboxied, but will not work with the browsers Sandboxied.

 

Now follow this :-

 

Open Sandboxie Control. Then -

Sandbox>Defaultbox>Sandbox Settings>Resourse Access-expand>IPC Access-expand>Direct Access>ADD (2 items) as under.

 

In panel Add Resource Name - add both these in turn, copy/paste using CNTRL+C for copy and CNTRL+V for paste :-

 

Add>\RPC Control\KSControlEp.Default*>OK - then :-

Add>BaseNamedObjects*\KSSettingsEvent*>OK - then :-

Click OK at bottom of Control Panel.

 
Open browsers with Sandboxie. The KS icon should show in the tray.
Orange = not active but ON, Green = active, Black animated = traffic, Red = OFF - RT click, select KS ON.
 
Browsers IE, Firefox and Chrome opened with Sandboxie will now have KS working perfectly.
This procedure should work with the paid versions of KS.
 
All done.
 
PS - Please excuse the variation in text quality. This is due to some irregularity in copy/paste.

What's the purpose of using a sandbox on a mac? (honest question, not sarcastic)

Where do you see a Mac being referenced?

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
Andrew Brown (1938-1994)


A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." Douglas Adams (1952-2001)


"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination circles the world." Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

Whoops!

 

But on windows, it basically runs it like as if a new os, nothing, such as a virus or .exe will harm the computer right? Or if it were to cause it to crash.
