Avast Sandbox has siezed my scanner/printer.   I can print from my PC.  I can scan documennts, but the scan app showes up in avast sandbox for some reason.  After completing the scan, it will not save the file to my PC.   I was scanning documents a few days ago without issues.   ?????!!!!

It is possible that you might have set the app to "Always run in Sandbox"

Please right-click on the app in question and select "Always run outside of Sandbox"
