Is this a virus? autosandboxme.exe. Windows want to access it.

I got this error in my computer. I researched what autosandboxme.exe is and all I got is that it is a virus. Why is Windows trying to access this if it is a virus?

Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item.

Thanks,

Marty

Good day!

It is not a virus, but rather a feature that is used by Avast Antivirus. it triggers the file everytime it is used or when it opens. You can try to locate and delete it and then uninstall Avast. Download a new installer and install it again to make sure both files are intact.

I hope this answered your question. Good luck!

Hello Marty,

The antivirus software which we usually use for protecting our PC from virus attack. This software runs scanning and checking files all the time whenever any new installation occurs or run any new program. Now the problem you have mentioned, it might happen if the firewall option is ‘On’ in your antivirus software. In that case, I would suggest you to turn off the firewall then try to install the program again. Hopefully this time the error won’t show up. You can turn on the firewall option after the installation. Hope this will help.

Good luck.
