Ever since I upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 last week, voodoshield doesn't seem to work.  I even tried restarting the computer.  In addition to restarting, I tried uninstalling and installing again but still it doesn't work. 
 
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

What are the System Requirements for VoodooShield?

For PC's, VoodooShield is compatible with Windows XP* SP2 through Windows 10 (32 & 64 bit).
For Servers, VoodooShield is compatible with Windows 2003 Server* and above (32 & 64 bit).

*VoodooShield is compatible with Windows XP and Windows 2003 Server, but does not offer all of the features or quite the level of security that the more modern operating systems offer.

Source: VoodooShield

 

According their site it's compatible with Windows 10.

I have no experience with it so I cannot help you, maybe/hopefully another user can?

 

Greets!

There is a lengthy thread at Wilders for Voodoo Shield, you should check it out.You could  post there with this issue, the developer is very active in the thread and either he or some other member may be able to solve your problem.

A lot of programs had problems after upgrading to Windows 10 when first released. Most likely they have been resolved by the vendor but that information is not always readily available.

You can contact VoodooShield Support and send them an email.

Thank you quietman7, for your help.  I got in touch with VoodoShield support and followed their instructions by doing the following:

 

1.        Uninstalled VoodoShield

2.       Removed all of the files in the directory --> C:\ProgramData\VoodooShield 

3.       Rebooted the computer

4.       Then reinstalled the latest beta version of VoodoShield.
