    Hey guys, we are getting very close!  Here is the latest version… there are just a few things that I need to finish up, like the new artwork on the How It Works form, and I also need to finish the Windows Firewall feature.  It is all ready to go, but I don’t want to actually automatically add rules until we are sure all of the bugs are fixed, because believe me, as many changes as there were in this version, there are most likely be a few small bugs.

    There are way too many changes under the hood and with the WLC implementation for me to describe, that it is probably best for you guys to just try it and see.  A few small things though, I removed the Advanced Snapshot feature for a lot of reasons.  First, we really need to get back to our roots and focus on VS’s proprietary tiny, customized whitelist… that really is what VS is all about.  The whole goal is to offer the smallest attack surface in the industry.  Also, there is no reason to analyze thousands of files with WLC.

    Also, brand new whitelists will be automatically generated and scanned with WLC.  Again, the whole goal is to keep the whitelist as small as possible.  Then again, with WLC and the other features we have implemented the last year or so, unwanted blocks should be pretty much non-existent.

    I hope to catch up on the posts here soon… it is great to see you “old guys” 😉.

    And yes, I would uninstall the standalone version of WLC now 😉.

    Thank you guys, have a great weekend!

    5.54D  seems to be working fine, no spinning issue.

    WLC listed as unsafe two microsoft files as per my posts above. This morning listed MyPatch installation of LibreOffice update as unsafe, I whitelisted.

    I have a question, as I noticed that WLC list MS process as unsafe often enough, I treat it as false positive and whitelist. Is this the way it should work?

    Thanks.

    Dan: Hey guys, this last infinite spinning issue has proved a little difficult to track down, simply because the exception is not being logged.  Once we have a good error message it should be super easy to fix.  So if you are still experiencing this issue, please check your Windows Event Viewer to see if the error is logged there, and if you find an error please email or post the entire error.  The source should be VoodooShieldService.  Thank you guys!

    Dan, I’ll have to install VS later and try to grab the error for you.

    Dan, installed 5.54D, restarted, I’m back to having a red tray icon, WLC is scanning and NO error for VS service showing in Event Viewer.

    Sorry.

    Dan,

    VS now states “Internet Down” when WLC kept/was scanning/spinning forever until I got Internet Down. I cannot see anything in “Event Viewer.” I have reset the Whitelist/restarted my PC twice. So it looks like I need to do another clean install of 5.54D?

    The WLC is Red as well.

    VS/WLC is back running normally after a clean reinstall. VS was hard to uninstall because it would not shut down. Even in Task Manager I could not force/end task. I rebooted my system and I was able to uninstall/reinstall VS again. 5.54D.

    Hey guys, please try this version, I think we are close!  It was a little rough there for a few days, but debugging all that new code in less than 3 weeks is pretty quick if you ask me… I knew the WLC integration was going to be difficult.  Thank you guys for all of your help, it made a HUGE difference.  The really cool part is that these obvious bugs exposed a few hidden bugs that would have been difficult to track down.  But we are in great shape now!

    Thank you Ssherjj!  Everyone please let me know if VS 5.54E does not shutdown properly.  I am assuming it was because of the infinite loop, but we better keep an eye on it just in case.

    oldschool: @Dan – VS v.554DBeta whitelists ConfigureDefender.exe but silently blocks any action taken within the application. (Attempted changes of any Windows Defender settings via ConfigureDefender blocked with only notice from ConfigureDefender)  Never had this happen before these recent Beta updates.

    Thank you OS for letting me know!  It seems to be working great with 5.54E, but can you please let me know if it is not working properly for you?  And if it is not, please let me know the steps to reproduce the error.

    5.54E over the top. Restarted PC a couple of time just to give it a test run. WLC scan down to 7sec and steady.🤞

    Ditto here…but only did one restart & scan tieme is 28.75 seconds.

    Will see how that goes over the weekend and if there are any ‘glitches’ will advise back before doing a complete uninstall & clean reinstall.

    Have a great weekend, Dan…and for goodness sake…get some rest.

    Regards, Baldrick

    Did a clean install of 5.54E. WLC scans are very fast. Last snapshot scan duration 1,52 seconds…

    No issues to report except chromium edge not being automatically recognized as web app.

    Added manually through  auto detect.

    Thanks Dan for the update! Looks like everything is running great as I installed 5.54E over top and I am getting 13 sec. scanning with WLC. All Safe!

     

    Have a great weekend!

    Good morning to everybody, or whatever time it is where you are. This is when I usually experience issues. 5.54E still going steady, PC  start WLC scan time 7 sec. Manual down to 4 to 5 sec.👍

    Schedule scan time every 5 min taking 5 sec, down from 10.😎

    Fully concur with Balders:

    Have a great weekend, Dan…and for goodness sake…get some rest.
