    My VS has started to become unresponsive to right click on it’s  tray icon, so I will need to reboot all the time to get it to work again. Not very practical to do this when VS becomes unresponsive, i.e. locks up.

     

    P.S.  I was running a third party uninstaller at the time, but it couldn’t proceed as per my screenshot. Hence the need to reboot, now.

    Whilst it is good to be able to e-mail Dan direct, I would prefer that when I have a problem with VS to post about it in the forum.

    That way we all get to see if the problem is a common one, or [just] exclusive to one.

    But, [whatever] we all get to learn something. So, I hope the forum continues…

    P.S. Installed latest beta:

    As I have mentioned recently, I have been having problems with resources used by VS.

    Since, I can’t get any resolution, I have decided to uninstall VS for the time being.

    After a reboot, still something is wrong:

    P.S.  Compare the Last Snapshot scan times of the screenshots, both are the same time, but different duration. Seem odd?????

    P.P.S Just noticed that I can’t drag and drop the VS GUI in this Whitelist mode.

    I did an over the top install, but it seems to not have gone well. CPU usage abnormal. Refer to recent post mentioning this.

    Resource usage went overboard for awhile, see  2nd and 3rd screenshots, especially:

    Updated thru the GUI.   A few lines from C:\ProgramData\VoodooShield\DeveloperLog.log

    It is looking good, I think.

    Here are a couple of errors taken from the DeveloperLog.log:

    I  just noticed something about the second screenshot…

    It is headed “User log”, but the sidebar shows “UI Tweaks” .  Strange, or not?

    😉  At least I wasn’t going mad…:)

    But,  now include a couple of screenshots, about the

    Multiple instances of conhost.exe…

    A staccato effect is seen for the first one, and hours later it settles down

    Dan:

    Tarnak: I have taken a screenshot of part of the C:\ProgramData\VoodooShield\DeveloperLog.log , and as can be seen, it is from before the update to v6.05 beta.

     

     

     

     

    It looks like something went wrong during the installation.  None of this part of the code has changed in a very long time, so there is probably something else going on here.

    Please try this…

    1.  Exit out of VS and Uninstall VS

    2.  Reboot the computer

    3.  Disable all other security software

    4.  Reinstall VS

    During the uninstall, VS will ask if you want to delete your settings and logs.  It would be best to click Yes, especially if you have had the same settings and whitelists for a long time.

     

    OK  …I have done a new baseline install as you can see from my screenshot. Will see how it goes over the following days.
