I have found that Voodoshield will often prevent F-Secure Freedome VPN from connecting at Windows start-up. This can lead to Windows crashing. Its not clear to me why this is happening- has anyone had experience of this and can someone suggest a solution ? Other VPNs work fine, it seems to be confined to this F-Secure product. I am signing in under a Standard User Account if that makes any difference.

Its a pity because I am an advocate of Voodooshield and I also like Freedome. However, they don't seem to play well together.

It occurred to me that if I could delay Voodoshield from starting upon login by 30seconds or so, there may be a way to avoid the conflict.
Freedome could connect without being blocked and VS can turn on shortly afterwards.

Anyone know if there is a way of doing this ?

I have posted on another thread that the changes made in Voodooshield 7.02 and 7.03 appear to have resolved the issue (based on a few days of testing).

You would be better with native Microsoft SRP because you can easily create allow exceptions. Plus you have all the logs necessary to figure out what is happening. That has always been a basic usability feature of Microsoft or other SRP.
