voodooshield incompatibility

Hello Everyone. since a day or two I started using Norton Security ( after using AVG Internet Security for a few years ) , switching security products was the best choice I ever made imho. my system and its responsiveness has been improved by miles , since the install of Norton. but the same problem occurs ( also had this when AVG was installed ) when I want to install voodooshield ( an anti executable ) which is supost to work alongside any security product and reboot my pc , voodooshield tells me it cannot because an error occured. does anyone else here faces the same problem?

I don't think it is related to Norton as I have both programs running happily on my two Win10 machines.

What Operating System?

Did you use the AVG uninstall utility before installing Norton?

Edit:  The best place to ask for help with this is to email VS Support at support@voodooshield.com.  Tell Dan I said G'day.

Re: voodooshield incompatibility

hello krusty , thanks for the reply :) to answer your questions I did do an unstall of AVG with softirganizer , then did a scan with autoruns and search everything and also the AVG remover. I do know that an AVG install leaves tons of unwnated stuff behind after uninstall so I even checked the registry and looked through the hidden folders and deleted everything before installing norton.had a conversation with voodooshield and sent them the logs they requested they even sent me the setup for beta 3.0 , with no succes :( can it be something else , that could be blocking the proper install? I also have cryptoprevent ( maxumum security mode )  installed

Did you allow the installation C++ 2010 ( I think) at the time you installed VS?

If your are receiving help from VS Support please stick with them as I'm sure they will figure out what is causing this.

  Cool!  Thanks for letting us know.  I'll have to remember that CryptoPrevent can cause this issue.
