    I had used sandboxie for almost 7 months with my old laptop with no problems whatsoever. Great little program. I just bought a new laptop (still running Windows XP) that was working fine until I installed sandboxie. Now it crashes a number of times a day. I tried uninstalling (then no crashes) and then reinstalling sandboxie and the same thing happens. I also tried doing all the windows updates, driver updates etc. and nothing helps. I really love the sandoxie program (it's fast, efficient and takes up very little disk space) and would hate to have to remove it permanently. Any suggestions?

    There are a number of virtualization programs available that are as good as SBIE, but if you really want that one, try an earlier version. It sounds like a driver conflict of some sort. The alternative is to look for updates for your other drivers, especially sound and graphics. A newer driver there may remove the problem.

    thanks, but I already updated all the drivers. I have researched all the sandbox programs and sandboxie is far and away the best free one (it is better than most of the ones you have to pay for). any other suggestions?

    If the driver is not compatible, then there is nothing that can be done to make it that way. You could check that it is being allowed by DEP and try running it in compatibility mode, but drivers are affected little by these changes.
