Tread carefully, there's fan-boys around.(My tip to the developer is to try and improve the layout of the website and provide some simpler guidance for thickies like me !)
The developer recommends using VS in Autopilot when testing like one would for other AVs, as this mode is closest to how an AV functions (very generally). You can see it in action in this old video by cruelsister:If you don't really understand how it works (like me) is the recommendation to use Smart Mode or Autopilot ?
I have looked at the Voodooshield website and it isn't very clear.

You seem to see them everywhere . Not everybody not agreeing with you in all points is one. This is not a gaming forum where its only nvidia or ati. You can like one product more than another for some reason and still see that it is not perfect.Tread carefully, there's fan-boys around.IMO.
Agreed, if we need to attach labels to others to spurn or make the point, then there is actually no "constructive" communication happening in the first place. I love VS and have been along for it's journey from the start, seeing it is not at it's destination yet or "perfect" I am still interested. Perfect software would get boring very fast (for me anyway)For me a fan-boy is a person who would defend every move of a company and thinks the company is perfect and error free without any doubt.
-i like VS
-but still think that more info about the company should be on the website
-think VS is a nice program but has flaws like all programms
- but dont't believe any company would answer the 18 question (from the other VS thread here) = automaticly a fan-boy?
For me the fan-boy term just kills any discussion. Don't agree with a statement>fan-boy>enough said
Hope you understand how it is meant can't get it any better worded
You do not have to believe that any company would answer all of the questions, and I did iterate on the original thread post that the chances of my questions being answered were "extremely slim".- but dont't believe any company would answer the 18 question (from the other VS thread here) = automaticly a fan-boy?
Suppose that you want to sell the product to someone, but the buyer has some reasonable doubts. Would you say that he should buy it anyway or show the proof to you?...
All he asks is that someone present a thing VS won't protect against. Nobody come forth.
They make all kinds of remarks but don't provide prof .
You're right. I hadn't thought about that... but it seems to be true.
@Andy Ful - I agree wholeheartedly. The onus is on the developer, AV testing labs, etc. The onus is not on Dan alone, in this case.Suppose that you want to sell the product to someone, but the buyer has some reasonable doubts. Would you say that he should buy it anyway or show the proof to you? ...
… Many MT readers, believe that VS is a very good product, as a kind of smart Anti-Exe, and they like it. The smart part (VoodooAi) can make VS a next-gen Anti-Exe. Yet, there are some reasonable doubts that it could make VS the Advanced Threat Protection. … ...Summing up - maybe it is true that VoodooShield is a peacock among ducks, but that does not mean that it can fly away like an eagle.
Anyone who claims otherwise, should prove it (in our case: VS developer, AV testing Lab, etc.). The potential VS buyers do not have to prove anything.
Yes, VS seems to have come a long way. I believe Dan feels the same way. And he may believe that some critics may not appreciate the time and effort put into it. And I agree it is in his interest to put good info out there for those that would like to know. I use it, enough to purchase a license. But it is not for everyone. I I use it because I like simple. After all, I am oldschool!You're right. I hadn't thought about that... but it seems to be true.... ...And now years after I abandoned it... I use it again on one computer. And it has really been developed and smoothed out... Dan put in a lot of work on that product. I like it now.
Dan knows Eddie Morra as Opcode, from the times when we were discussing if VS could block the kernel exploits (for example EternalBlue exploit). Dan respected Opcode for his knowledge about Windows Internals. He probably took seriously the thread with Eddie Morra questions.[QUOTE="oldschool, post: 781742, member: 71262"
He was invited to last night by Dan@ COU, about the time Eddie made his last post (since deleted by him or by mods!) accusing other posters of attacking him, cyberstalking him, using agents on other forums - with a grand finale by announcing his account deactivation!
There were probably hidden motives, but they were not destructive. The relations of some MT members with Dan are rather complicated, and some known & respected MT members, were sometimes disrespectful towards Dan (not without a reason). I like Dan, because he created a good software and was usually opened to critical discussion, but sometimes I wanted to tear him into pieces and throw to the Moon....
I am aware of some of that discussion at Wilders. I take the time to read. I respect peoples' knowledge, but not uncivil and disrespectful behavior - at any age. Or hidden motives.
