No, this is a regular email address.
YES a valid e-mail is needed..sorry folks
Mine was my real email address.
I have sent Dan an email. I'm sure we'll get it sorted.
Dan fixed it for me. I'm a member too now!

I still can't get registered for the VoodooShield Forum. Using my real email, checking spam boxes, no luck.

Gave the beta a run out in Shadow Defender while browsing Sandboxied in Vivaldi.
This is for Dan, since I can't post a screenshot at his new forum - https://voodooforums.com/forums/topic/gui-has-lost-focus-when-opened-i-e-has-shrunk/#post-2132
Dan, as you suggested, a reboot took care of the problem...
New VS user here with a question about the settings under Basic > Security Posture... What is the result of selecting 'Silent'?
I did try to look it up in the pdf, but it's desperately in need of an update!
If you click the "i" icon you will get an explanation.
@Krusty, sorry I overlooked the obvious. Thanks!
Am trying out VoodooShield 5.02 Free.
I have a PDF creator plugin from Foxit PhantomPDF in Firefox. When I do a Web search, every time I click on "Next" to get the next page of search results, VS alerts me that it "blocked a possible exploit" for a file "foxitcmd.cmd" located in AppData/Local/Temp. No matter how many times I click on Allow for this file, the next time the file gets called VS keeps asking me if I want to block or allow it.
Is this a false positive, or should I be worried about it? VirusTotal reports no issues with this file.
How do I add this file to the whitelist so that VS doesn't keep bugging me about it? I don't see anywhere in the GUI where I could (for example) simply "add this file to the whitelist."
Thanks. I'm just starting on VS, so please bear with me!
You're better off trying 5.04.
Thanks! And I didn't realize VS has their own support forum, so your post was doubly informative.
To install this new version, would I first uninstall the current version or would I install the new one over the current one?
Install right over the top.
That worked very well, thank you!
The Block/Allow prompt seems to function in a less obscure manner in 5.04 than in 5.02 which I'd first installed: now when I click to Allow the file foxitcmd.cmd, a new dialog pops up asking me if I want to create a rule for the file:
However, the choices for Rule Type sound pretty scary: why would I choose Allow for "all files on my computer" or even "all files" on any drive? All I want is to create a rule for this one specific file in the Temp folder, not for the entire Temp folder. I didn't find any guidance in the VS User Guide for how to create rules.
Hoping someone can walk me through the process; I'm sure I'm not the only one who has or will ever have this question.
UPDATE: As I continue to use Firefox, the prompt to create the rule isn't showing up any more. All I'm getting now is the pop-up asking whether to block or allow foxitcmd.cmd.
