The test tool for AutoSandbox has disappeared.
Is it no longer available?
Regards.

Thanks,David.
I was just wondering why the new version didn't replace the old one as it was such a useful tool.
Regards

You're welcome.

I don't know why, but my guess is that the original (version 1) would still be used for the hold outs on avast 6.

Just as a matter of interest.
When i clicked on your link it was blocked by Avast.I then tried again and  i get a message that it was "Timed Out" whatever that means.

Ah, forgot I got an FP on it yesterday and reported it as such. Looks like it hasn't been resolved yet.

Stop the Web Shield to be able to download, the file system shield will alert then, but if set to Ask you can have it ignore and allow it to be saved (or send it to the chest) until such time as the FP is corrected.
