    Hi there, not sure where to report this but I think there is a wrong version reported by VoodooShield website. If you google VoodooShield download, you get 2 top links as following:

    (1) Download VoodooShield™

    It leads to download page which says it's version 2.22. Subject of the page is "Download VoodooShield™ 2.22 - Free for Non-Commercial Use!"

    (2) VoodooShield™ - The User-Friendly Toggling Computer Lock.

    It leads to home page of VoodooShield and if I click on Download link at the top it leads to a section claiming I am downloading version 3.59.

    I think both download the same file. Not sure which version though - as I have not installed it yet...

    Thanks, did not realize all threads for VoodooShield are combined into a single thread. I posted as you suggested.

    The files probably bear the same name, but if you do a right click and check details, it will show you which version. 3.59 is the one you want, it is the latest stable version and it works quite well for most people.

    Thanks for confirmation, shmu26: indeed right-click on InstallVoodooShield.exe, under Details tab shows 3.59. My main point then is that the first webpage that says the version is 2.22 is incorrect. It must have gotten hardcoded a while ago and should be fixed to avoid confusion. I used that first link and assumed I was downloading version 2.22 but then found references online to later versions which confused me as to how I missed the right version. I did not realize that while the page says I am downloading version 2.22, it's actually downloading version 3.59.

    I am not sure how to contact Dan / dev team to report this. (Did not find "contact us" on the voodooshield.com)
