You can do that: From yr taskbar you can click on I.E and say "Safe run" ( right click )

copy the start menu shortcut for internet explorer and paste it onto the desktop. change the name to Safe Run. then paste the code required from below in the target entry for the shortcut in the shortcut properties dialogue box.

 

For internet explorer it would be:

 

32-bit machines -

"C:\Program Files\Kaspersky Lab\Kaspersky Internet Security 2011\sbstart.exe" -silent 2 "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"

 

64-bit machines using 32-bit Internet Explorer -

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Kaspersky Lab\Kaspersky Internet Security 2011\sbstart.exe" -silent 2 "C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"

 

64-bit machines using 64-bit Internet Explorer -

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Kaspersky Lab\Kaspersky Internet Security 2011\sbstart.exe" -silent 2 "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"

Does anybody know what the "-silent" does in the shortcut target?

 

I don't have "-silent" in my shortcut target, and it seems to work fine. (I figured this out on my own before I did a search on this forum).

 

My shortcut target for Firefox in Windows XP, Service Pack 3, 32-bit, looks like this (include the quotes):

"C:\Program Files\Kaspersky Lab\Kaspersky Internet Security 2011\sbstart.exe" 2 "C:\Program Files\MOZILLA FIREFOX\FIREFOX.EXE"

 

Thanks in advance for your help.

-silent

 

not sure as I just modified some existing code I saw on the forum for firefox shortcuts. I have tried it without the silent option and it makes no difference on my machine either.

 

with most applications the command line option would instruct the program to run without displaying a GUI for example. so in theory it was put there to prevent the executable sbstart.exe from displaying any dialogue. whether it is needed still for 2011 sandbox is another matter.

Thank you, antikythera, for your prompt and informative reply.

 

I will add "-silent" to my shortcut target because your reply indicates a good reason to include it, at least in theory, and you and others on this forum (on different threads) have suggested it.

 

By the way, in KIS 2010, I thought the number "2" in the shortcut target was a command to clear sandbox files on exit, but clearing files on exit didn't work consistently on my PC. (The "clear" command in KIS 2011 Safe Run for Websites works like a charm.) As you probably know, removing the number "2" in the shortcut target for KIS 2011 causes an "incorrect settings" error message.

 

Thanks again.
