to work around the problem with not being able to update "sandboxie", instead of using the sandboxie program's updater, download the regular installer for the "sandboxie" program and run it, to update the sandboxie program..
I was running the highest level of CP protection prior to this, so it may have contributed to the problem
yep.. if you look at cryptoprevent's GUI, it clearly says that, when using the "maximum protection settings", cryptoprevent's protection may need to be temporarily disabled when installing software..
incidentally, i also recently started using the "maximum protection settings".. i am going to have to see how that works out..
I then chose to uninstall CP using the CP uninstaller but all the group policies remained in the registry
did you disable cryptoprevent's protection before uninstalling cryptoprevent? you probably should have disabled cryptoprevent's protection before uninstalling cryptoprevent..
i don't know if cryptoprevent's protection is suppose to be undone, automatically, as part of the uninstall-process, or not..
I ran regedit and located all the subtasks under 'path' and they do indeed belong to CP. I tried to delete the path, but was denied
if you are using one of the newer versions of windows, you have to run "regedit" with administrator-privileges in order to be able to delete regkeys.. did you remember to run regedit with administrator-privileges?
my advice would be to reinstall the "cryptoprevent" program, then use it to undo cryptoprevent's protection.. you might need to re-apply the protection before being able to undo the protection..
if you are using one of the newer versions of windows, remember to use administrator-privileges when installing programs, or when uninstalling programs, or when using "regedit" to delete regkeys..
for the record, i am not a long-time user of cryptoprevent.. i did start using CP around the time that it first came out, and i had it installed for several months, without any problems..
however, somewhere along the way, i quit using it, probably because i was frustrated with using the CP program's "software restricted policy editor"..
however, recently, i decided to reinstall CP.. and, yes, i was frustrated with using the "software restricted policy editor", so i uninstalled it, again.. then i reinstalled it.. then i uninstalled it.. finally, i decided to reinstall it and to leave it installed..
i did finally manage to get the CP program to do what i was trying to get it to do, which was to block all SCR files from running while still allowing my screensaver to run..
on my computer, the regkeys that are generated by CP are located at:
