Question about Computers & Internet
I've used Sandboxie 3.01 to run Firefox for a year, problem-free - except:
After a couple of weeks, I noticed the hard disk grinding away almost all the time, doing something, when Sandboxie is active. Exit Sandboxie, kill the Sandboxie Service process, and it stops. Run Firefox without Sandboxie, no problem. Run Firefox with Sandboxie - disk activity, near constant. Exit Firefox but leave Sandboxie up - disk activity, near constant.
Then after a few months it stopped. Nothing had changed about the computer coincident with the cessation - no new programs, updates, etc.
Then after another few months it once more started happening - again, when there were no changes to the computer.
Couldn't find references to this problem by searching the Sandboxie forum or Google.
I see no evidence of a malware infection. And I have a host of security programs - Comodo Firewall, Threatfire, WinPatrol, Spyware Guard, Spyware Blaster, Blacklight, and malware scanners. And I don't visit warez or similar sites. And McAfee Site Advisor. OpenDNS.
Win2000 SP4 on a Dell with 1.8GHz P4, 512MB RAM.
Anybody familiar with this or could suggest where/what I might look for? Much appreciated.
You are running all that on a P4 with 512 Mb of RAM, it is probably constantly paging to the hard drive because you are using all the RAM. This is only made worst if you set up Sandboxie with a Ramdisk. In short, I think you need more RAM

Sandboxie will do that as it is constantly searching for data. Try running Speed Disc to clean up the hdd, that may reduce activity or get a quieter hdd perhaps.

Save hours of searching online or wasting money on unnecessary repairs by talking to a 6YA Expert who can help you resolve this issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
Here's a link to this great service

I don't have a solution, but may have more information - I am having the exact same problem, but with a different router (linksys wireless g router and a cable modem).
I am unable to access any website with "mcafee" in the url on one PC, but can connect from another. Running tracert from the "bad" PC to www.mcafee.com times out at the local network (192.168.1.1). All this leads me to believe that the problem is tied to a local virus. There is no network-level keyword restriction, visible or hidden, confirmed by accessing www.mcafee.com from the good PC through the same router/modem.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Your problem.
Well looks like you're the one that gets to rate this one! I'll post a problem to you a little later, and we'll darn sure give it the old FY! (And I DON't mean "f**k you!")(Hmm --- another strange interpretation of the FixYa acronym???)
I did copy the above and saved it in wordpad for future reference, but right now, 13 hours later, Kaspersky is still scanning....but it HAS turned up a lot of stuff that AVG did not flag, so that is good!!!
I ended up staying up the better part of the night, caught up in some chat BS on the last thread I posted... BIG DUMMY!!! I'm paying for it now!
Do send me the Norton via e-mail and I'll get back with you later... I'm keeping an eye on the scan, it asks for input occassionally...and I'll catch up with you later!

I recommend forgetting AVG and Avanquest for now and downloading a strong anti-spyware application. You can find many for free. Good ones are MS Anti-Spyware, Super Anti-Spyware, Spyware Doctor, or SpywareBlaster. Go to PCworld.com for trusted downloads. It's possible the spyware is causing your scans to abort prematurely to avoid you being alerted of their presence
