    Hey, i have Windows Defender and im looking for a second layer of protection.

    1) Zemana AM
    2) NoVirusThanks EXE Radar Pro
    3) VoodooShield FREE

    i think i know how it works but its the FREE not the pro. Also if it is a zero day malware it will go through it cause there will be no signs for it right??

    Probably VoodooShield, but I'm not understanding the comparison. Neither of these three actually perform the same functions. NVTERP and VS are only slightly similar in their anti-executable function.

    its free but probably the best against zerodays.
    and about second part of your question, i still have a weak english knowledge so i didnt underestand your question correctly, anyway VS as i heard, will check the new and untrusted files ( before execute ) in VirusTotal and alarm you if found anything suspicius..

    NVT ERP is not being actively developed and according to what developer said on the other forums it will be rebuild from scratch so the choice is quite simple - VS.
    VS is well developed, easy to use, almost unbeatable and support is top notch.
    ZAM... well... it's not bad but some of decisions regarding the development are rather weird (like removing the "ask user" option), low quality uninstaller (many leftovers not easy to remove for an average user) and not the best support doesn't make me their biggest fan.
    My vote goes to VS but I am still curious what the future brings for ERP ;)

    P.S.
    You can still use ZAM portable as on demand scanner or simply run the PRO version next to VS.

    I never said that ERP doesn't work. It is only not being developed so potentially it can have some undiscovered flaws :D

    I agree but if it is a zero day malware it can go through VoodooShield cauze there will be no signatures for it right?
    So ERP can block it cause its not in the whitelist right?

    VS is not signature based. VS is whitelisting software supported by VoodooAi, Cuckoo sandbox and VT scan.
    ERP is pure anti-exe.

    Dude, if VS finds something it uploads it and base on the blacklist it blocks it or allowes it right?
    If we have a zero day malware VS doesnt have signatures of it right?

    VS in always on or smart mode will block everything regardless of virustotal or voodooAi. It blocks first, then shows a popup with details: VT detection rate, Ai score -> Allow it or not
    In those 2 modes VS works exactly the same as NVT but it shows you the VT and Ai score which help you to decide to keep blocking or allow. NVT simply blocks everything not on the whitelist but you don't have any information so it's not easy to decide if the file is safe or not. VS also creates a whitelist in the first installation

    In autopilot mode, it's no longer a full anti-exe, it's hybrid. if you get a completely new malware, you will receive a popup like this: VT= 0 or 1/56 + Ai score = unsafe -> do you want to keep bloking it, or VS will automatically block the malware after 20 seconds
    if you run a legit file, VS will block it first, then gets the VT score + Ai score. If VT=0 or 1 and Ai=safe => VS will automatically allow the file to run

    So VS is a better and more detailed version of NVT.
    So its better to have in Autopilot?

    yes of course. it has almost everything to be better
    you can try it and evaluate yourself. Nothing is better than your own testing. I tried to explain but I'm sure not everyone can understand it. VS should be be explained by making a video with voice because it's complicated :)

    Personally I would say VoodooShield
    @pablozi more or less wrapped this up.
    @LanDude it would be best to try it and read the VS user guide with the link provided by @pablozi
    If you want to try the pro version of VS I will send you a PM
