all I can say is that the Avast sandbox works much better here on my system than CIS 4/5 sandbox does... ???

PGP has already been an issue when I got BSODs with Avast (just once or twice during the beta testing)..so may be that's a hint...no idea why and how though.

You can use GnuPG...

Sorry Tech,

Asyn, no problem.
My concern is that if I do not receive help here in avast forum, would I need to post 50+ posts to receive help of avast sandbox BSODing in another forum?

I manage it to work with CIS 5 RC.
Only that is necessary to remove the system virtualization.
I can sandbox Firefox in two levels: partially limited and limited.
Continue to test. Seems I'll say bye bye to AIS... At least until we can fix it (BSODs and some lack of configurability: exclusion of file types).
I can't live with BSODs

Tech, why don't you ask Petr for help ???

I get the impression you only ( try to ) communicate thru the forum, and not directly with the developers :-\ You should try it ;)

+1. I also had experienced a couple of BSODs recently. I don't know about you Tech, but I sent my minidump files to pk and he quickly fixed the issue in the internal build. ;)

Red, I've done it.
I offered remote connection to my machine.
It could be tested in a virtual environment.
The only handicap is the absence of the dump (due to CTM). I know it's a huge absence, but they could have tried to simulate this.

okay, I've never used CTM, but I'm learning now that it prevents the creation of memory dumps after bsods ??? CMIIW but I suppose this is related to an automatic system restoration by CTM when the system crashes...wow...
 back to topic >>> how could Avast devs detect what goes wrong without any dump files, obviously impossible. Okay you know it...
 As to simulate it...how? just curious...if they could reproduce on their systems the conditions in which your system failed (while sandboxing), this would mean they already know the cause.

Tech,

If you have those BSOD's with CTM installed, maybe you should ask the Comodo Devs for help. I have tested CTM from even before the first public BETA ( thnx to one of the Comodo Mods ) but it is a very risky and troublesome technic in my opinion.

yes, not mentioning that indeed CTM could be behind the crashes...
