    I have been using 5.64 since it was released and everything has been running smoothly without any problems at all.

    Can’t get the latest firefox Nightly to install. I made sure it was the legit firefox nightly, but I feel like it would be best to have an expert look at the file submissions.

    Firefox nightly’s installer runs just fine, but there’s a command line that VS blocks afterward.

    Thank you guys for letting me know that VS is running great!

    @GrDukeMalden, are you running 5.64?  It included a rather major command line fix.  I just installed the FF Nightly and it worked flawlessly on 5.64.  The major command line fix was a result of a dev and his team were having an issue with msbuild.exe and VS.  Basically, whenever they would build a project, since the hash of the file changed (new code / hash / build), VS would block an item.  Well, it makes sense because I would be worried if VS did not block a child process or command line of a vulnerable parent process like msbuild.exe, especially when these files are typically in favorite malware hiding locations.  Basically, this was one of the most difficult fixes I have ever encountered, but I am extremely happy with how it turned out.

    But if anyone runs into an issue like this, just let me know and we will figure out a fix.  Typically, a somewhat major fix like this will fix other similar issues as well.  This is how VS has become so highly refined over the years.  Sure, it takes time, hard work and patients, but it is most certainly worth it.  And thankfully since we built our own custom tech, we are able to offer granular refinements like this that we would not be able to safely do otherwise.  For example, if we were using some other tech like SRP, I guess you would just be SOL if you wanted to auto allow randomly named files that change hashes and are located in dangerous folders, and are spawned by a vulnerable process ;).

    Hi Dan,

    I would like to make a tiny (literally and figuratively) feature request. Could you please include the VS version (e.g., 5.64 beta) part of the pop-up when hovering the mouse over the VS icon on the Windows Taskbar?

    Thanks!

    Considering the following has been verbiage on our website for 3-4 years, it should be obvious that I agree with Rubenking.

    “VOODOOSHIELD IS NOW FREE FOR NON-COMMERCIAL HOME USE AND IS PRE-CONFIGURED WITH OPTIMAL SETTINGS WHICH WILL WORK GREAT FOR THE MAJORITY OF HOME USERS.”

    I understand why they are upset, I would be upset too if someone was kicking my ass.  The difference is that I would work hard and play fair because I am certain karma is a bitch.  I am just happy that some people understand how the cybersecurity industry works, and some do not.

    I do agree pretty much 100% with Neil’s review… no software is perfect.  The fact is that no one has been reviewing security products longer than Neil, and no one has seen more security products than Neil.  He started writing for PCMag when I was in high school, and I used to read the articles.  He actually digs into the product and uses it for several days so that he completely understands how the product works and what it is capable of.  Which I assume is why VS has made the top 10 Antivirus list several times.  Think about all of the companies that did not make the top 10 list.  Not too shabby for a guy and his dog from Kansas.  In other words, 4 stars is actually pretty good for a PCMag review.

    BTW, I did not request the review… he had emailed me several months ago to do an updated review when we were in the middle of VS 5.0-5.5, so I asked him for some more time.  This time he emailed me and told me he had already started to review the free version, and would only postpone the review if I really wanted him to.  Since VS is always a work in progress, I figured… well, why not?

    Some people understand what VS is all about and some do not.

    Everyone will know in a few months.
