DanKeymasterGreetings! Neither VoodooShield or the VoodooShieldService depend on Windows Firewall. They both just make standard calls using a WebClient. The only exception is when WhitelistCloud creates Windows Firewall rules, but that should not have anything to do with this.

Are you experiencing these types of issues with any of your other apps? I imagine if you searched enough you could find a fix, but it looks like SpyShelter strongly advises to not use the TDI driver, along with other devs like the WFC dev.
From the SpyShelter website…
Windows XP users should use TDI driver, while Windows Vista/7/8/10 should use WFP driver. SpyShelter detects your system version and uses recommended driver automatically. You can read more about them on the internet. While it is possible to change the currently selected Firewall driver, we strongly advise to not do it.10
