You usually have a sensible opinion.
Surely you are not lost for words this time.

Hmm, seems it's not compatible with XP. :(
Will be checked.

Works perfectly with Windows 7.

I downloaded autosandbox.me, clicked on it, on which the following window appeared:

I figured it would be best to post in this topic and not start a brand new thread to clutter the forum up to get a question answered. 

I noticed that since using an older version of the autosandbox tool (and it not working, due to compatibility issues which have been stated), it basically succeeded in making changes.  In my items that start up from boot up there appears to be something related to the autosandboxtest tool which I'm not sure how to get rid of (or anything from that boot list for that matter).

Is there a way to get rid of autosandboxtest off my computer entirely?  It seems to be lingering.

Did you use the original autosandboxme or the new one http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=76650.msg825680#msg825680:)

If all else fails uninstall using safe mode.  :)

I use the original tool and then realized there was an updated version, the old version didn't work on win7 so it basically told me it had made a change to my registry and left that little text thing near the documents folder saying it hadn't worked. 

I don't understand what you meant by uninstall in safe mode if you mean AIS I've actually reinstalled it since using the autosandbox test tool, the fact is there is still a boot program (currently unticked to boot on startup) which says it's the autosandbox tool.  Or did you mean uninstall the autosandbox tool?

I'm not really following how this would fix the issue of what the autosandbox test tool has done to my registry, there is from what I know nothing wrong with the autosandbox itself.  I was noting the fact that in my boot up programs along with things like my OS, Messenger etc there is an autosandboxtest that I can't seem to get rid of.  I was showing a tech my boot list when we noticed it, I assumed that the autosandboxtest was completely safe... yet it seems to be left on my boot program list in msconfig lol.

How did the tool get into your "boot list"? I keep the autosandboxme2 tool in my downloads. All I do is Control Panel>Downloads>double click the tool. It never leaves my downloads folder. It should not affect the registry in
a negative way. Have you used CCleaner to clean/fix your registry? http://filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/
CCleaner is completely safe to use.

I just can't understand how it got to your "boot list".  ???

Maybe he wants to state about "start-up" list in msconfig. First autosandbox.exe adds an entry into it.

@ DBenjamin85
The entry added by autosandbox.exe is completely inert, it has no bad effect even if it remains.
You have to use some 3rd-party tools like CCleaner to delete it though.

Sorry that was what I meant, thank you NON, I meant the start-up list and am glad that is what that is.  I'll do a clean a bit later, that or I'll go ahead with a format anyway which I was going to do already.
