Hi.

Since i changed to W10, Voodooshield (Pro) slows down a lot my computer (a Core I5-4690K overclocked @ 4400MHz and 16GB RAM).

With W7 was OK.

So, i'm searching for a Voodoshield Pro alternative.

I read about OSArmor and Hard_Configurator but i'm not sure wich one to use.

What AV are you using on Windows 10?
Simple Windows Hardening (basic simple version (no offence @Andy Ful ) could be a more user-friendly option for Hard_Configurator.
Both are highly recommended and have their own thread here:
OSArmor will be subscription based in the near future:
You may post your security config here: Computer Security Configuration for better advice.

VoodooShield REALLY should not slow your computer down, especially the latest version...

VS 5.97a beta

If you do continue to experience a slowdown, we need to look at the CPU, RAM and HDD usage, since those are the 3 components that are suspect during a computer slowdown. We actually have a utility called Bottleneck that will help you determine what might be the cause, you can download it here...

As with some other security products, there are somewhat similar products in the deny-by-default space, but there are no direct replacements / alternatives to VS. Each product is unique and offers different features, and choosing the best product for you all depends on what your needs and wants are. VS's core features are listed on our website in the "How VoodooShield is Different" section.

One thing is certain... no matter what your security setup is, it will benefit greatly from adding VS's dynamic levels of protection / automatic toggling with risky web apps, and WLC's automatic creation of firewall rules for files that are not known to be safe, among several other features.
