Problem today on VooDooShield which finds an update, installs OK but the process goes over & over many times until closed version 3.59. The program continues to do this until closed down. It's a paid version but does it on free also. I also imaged back a few weeks before I had the program so essentially it was a fresh installation but it does the same update over & over. At this point I've deleted it as it’s driving me to distraction. Am I alone in this ;-)

I am having the same issue. Let's wait for an official fix..Currently my Voodooshield can't even start. When I press start, it goes to update mode.

Great, as long as it's not just I - will await a fix - Thanks all :)
I still have that version in my VM. I will crank that up later after the football game and see if I get same results.

EDIT: I had time before the game to check out the issue in my VM and sure enough it gets stuck in an update loop.

Issue should be fixed now:
Sorry for the inconvenience… I did not realize that it was already New Years in certain time zones
.

The automatic update should work fine now, but if it does not, you can download VoodooShield 4.15 below.

https://voodooshield.com/Download/InstallVoodooShield.exe

There were a lot of changes in VoodooShield and the database in version 4.0, so please check your account to make sure everything is accurate, and if it is not, please let me know.

If there is anything odd with your account, you might try to exit out of VoodooShield, then delete the following file, then start VoodooShield again.

C:\ProgramData\VoodooShield\voodooshield-token.json


Happy New Years!



Thank you,

Dan

Everyone with v3.59 stable version should uninstall and remove any remnants and install new stable v4.15!
The upgrade does not work because of too much changes between those two versions.
