how to run ccleaner sandboxed

Post by jpsdjs » Mon Apr 23, 2018 11:45 am

Stats: Windows 7 pro 64-bit, Sandboxie, ESET SS, Wise Disk Cleaner, CCleaner, etc.

Thanks much for Sandboxie.
I finally realized after all this time I was running CCleaner without it being Sandboxed.
I presume I should do this??
I probably have other programs that I am running not Sandboxed (EX: Wise Disk cleaner)
How can I changed this to run Ccleaner Sandboxed????
Thanks for any help.

Hello jpsdjs,

Please see:

If you run CCleaner inside Sandboxie, it will defeat the purpose of CCleaner as it will not be able to clean your system (the changes will only take place in the Sandbox. That is, if it doesn't hang, as explained on the thread above).

CCleaner running outside Sandboxie can be used to empty the contents of your Sandboxes, please see:

Hi jp, no, you should not run CCleaner sandboxed. Thats not the type of program you want to run sandboxed. The purpose for using CCleaner is to delete files in the real system, for that you need to run it out of the sandbox. There is no reason to run it sandboxed.
