Hello iv been away for a bit and have noticed Voodoo Anti Malware is on the download page if possible could someone with experience of this software briefly tell me their experience of it and is it worth installing.

From what iv been able to read about it it seems to be a pretty good idea in practice....Just a little info from someone familiar with it would be great.

Thank You For reading this post.

I think you meant VoodooShield :)

VS belongs to a category of software called anti-executable - basically it allows only executable files trusted by the user to run and prevents all other executables from launching, which most of the time are malware.

It is a good software to use, but can take quite a bit of learning if you are unfamiliar with anti-executable software in general.

It's probably because Zemana Anti-Malware is right below it. :)
