    lel, are you serious? :D Who's jumping on who? Look what you wrote in previous post, just plain rude, i hope you understand that. That wasn't constructive criticism about Voodooshield in any way. Nothing personal mate, i will just assume you're having a bad day o_O:rolleyes:;)

    I'm tired of saying the same things over and over again. I give up, it only makes MalwareTips look bad and here are some amazing people.

    I am really puzzled on why we can't disagree without annoying each other. Ok people don't agree about a security software. So what, you can survive with the program or without the program so no reason to destroy the experience of all user visiting a topic.
    At the end mods will have to start censoring and closing topics like they do at the other forum and it will be bad for all. You would not be able to say a word offtopic making the whole forum experience sad.
    So everyone have a nice day and use the program you want and prefer. If you don't agree with someone mention it, or not, and move on. Take care guys.

    I am off topic obviously so please move/remove this if you want.

    Did I hear somebody say that there was a twitter post saying that it was going to be soon? (I don't Tweet)
    I haven't checked "the other" forum today...Is Vlad involved again yet?

    Excellent :)
    I wonder how though :confused:.....Surely competing with AVs that have default settings will mean that VS blows the competition out of the water....Wont all the other competitors be using just "signature based definitions" in comparison to the trained VAI of VS?

    I have suggested Dev to remove not reputed/FPs prone AVs for Blacklist Scan And list AVs in the GUI...so that users can select/unselect AVs for detection (Dont know VT policy & could be done or not?).
    Dev is stabilizing/optimizing VS & looking into freeze issue some users are experiencing, Vlad is going to look into freeze issue soon. Once things are stable, we will see more features/options in VS as per Dev.

    VAi - Safe/Suspicious/Unsafe verdict are there. Safe/Unsafe verdict works good.
    Suspicious verdict is kinda let users know VAi detected suspicious And think you can check VAi details on the popups. Some users may find it sensitive or think FPs But as mentioned its to let users know VAi detected suspicious And there is an option in the GUI to not alert for VAi Suspicious verdict.

    Don't use words like "fanboys" , insult each other, or discuss about he said she said stories without argumentative support.
    A lot of words, sentences and posts needs to be corrected or deleted completely from the thread but I won't do it in this case.
    Healthy discussion is always welcomed, but please guys, be respectful to each other, stay on topic as much as possible and agree to disagree sometimes.

    I am back onboard with Voodoo, after giving kaspersky's TAM another try. I like the fact that TAM is integrated with a major AV suite, but it is too glitchy and hard to manage, so I went back to Voodoo.

    I dont like TAM. It blocks all unsigned apps by default and it takes time to go through settings and allow them

    Good morning, how is VooDooshield whitelist? Does this software block a lot of legitimate programs?

    depends how you use it.
    If you put it on autopilot, you risk certain legit software being blocked. So if you run a lot of niche software, don't do that
    Better to put it in smart mode. Then you will be asked whether to block, and you will be given smart info to help you make your decision.
    FYI in pro version, you can choose your preferred level, anywhere between reckless, balanced and paranoid
