  I wish to run a program (AutoCAD) in sandbox, not due to virus concerns, but because something on my system has started to interfere with it and causes frequent crashes.  It appears that running it in sandbox solves this problem.  However, I need to save my work files (drawings) outside of sandbox so that I don't lose my changes.  Is this possible under either the free or Avast pro editions?  If so, how do I do this?  Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!

I am not sure what you want to do is possible i.e. save the changed files outside the sandbox.  Others here would know if that is the situation or not.

I would think the folks at Audodesk $ADSK should be able to help you fix your problem.

You didn't mention if you had contacted them or not.
