I will uninstall my AV and VoodooShield before installing the Creators Build.
I'm riding in your car on this one
I have installed the creator update with voodooshield installe(disable/install mode) on 3 machine nad all 3 works like a charm. No issue whatsoever.
Thanks for that "Heads Up"
Same here on every Insiders builds and even left WSA running in my VM's.
Well, now, there's something to be said for "sloppy and lazy", but I developed a respect for the effects of the Self Protect feature, so I'm following NWOAbschaum's lead and disabling v.356. Should be OK.
hey Dan, is there a chance that you will add a user whitelist section in the program to separate the valid programs that got whitelisted (in the current whitelist) and the malicious/suspicious programs that got whitelisted? i'm asking just so it will be easier to manage the files that I reported as false positives and to separate them from the harmless programs.
If i can help. You can whitelist your files/folders this way: go Setting - Custom Folders - Enable Custom Folders.
ok thx tonino
Hey guys... sorry I have been away, it was a crazy long weekend, I was doing some testing of sorts with VoodooAi. Once I catch up on my consulting projects in a day or two (my day job), I will try to catch up on the posts and pm's I missed. Thank you guys, talk to you soon!
hello. would someone please be kind enough to link me to the most stable version that I should be using? Thanks!
Okay, so I put VS in training mode, and that seems to have healed it.
Seems a bit funny to me that people are jamming Dan's PM fully knowing he has been very busy on his corporate website ect.
Give the guy a break and ask your questions when he can come back and post instead of making him feel guilty about not answering your calls at present.
I had dismhost blocked this morning. Maybe because of Creators Update. I added a command line with wildcards c:\users\*\appdata\local\temp\*\dismhost.exe
I hope it helps.
EDIT: despite my nifty command line (which I am not sure how secure it is), I still get a prompt for dismhost every time I run Windows Disk Cleanup\clean up system files
hash of dismhost.exe
Yes, also updated to Creators Build. I disabled VS after installing 3.57 over the top, and to be on the safe side, I unchecked these two in Advanced Settings. Using the Update Assistant, it went without a hitch. Very nice!
**Also getting the DismHost.exe block with disk cleanup/Automatic Maintenance. No big deal but thought I would bring it up.
Sorry I have been away, things have been a little crazy lately and hopefully it will all make sense soon . Thank you guys!!!
It doesn't have to be this way. The user should be given the ability to whitelist a process even if it runs from a different temp folder every time. For instance, whitelisting by hash, or by path with support for wildcards.
I think the majority of us know you give as much time as you can reasonably spare to this forum and VS development Dan
I agree... VS is quite user friendly as it is, but there are tons of small usability improvements that we can implement, like the one you suggested, that would really add up to a lot. It is difficult to do it on my own, but I can promise you that I am working on a permanent solution .
Hehehe, my goal is to not be a developer at all, and just talk to you guys, and figure out how to create the most secure, user-friendly security software possible. .
