I think it is false positive
I don't think so, it seems to be a malware - please submit "themed32.dll" to http://virusscan.jotti.org/en

Cleanup sandbox content: start Sandboxie Control (from tray icon), right-click on default sandbox -> Delete contents.

That file is not part of Sandboxie, so just delete the contents of the sandbox
and you ll be fine and able to use Sandboxie.
