  1. by the way, client lost access to her @stx.rr.com email & we need to migrate her premium mbam account to her new gmail, i've got her license & stuff to confirm whenever yall are ready
  2. so i guess similar to xp, vista ransomware might not be supported... but what about web protection? all the background tasks look normal, so i don't think there's anything preventing it... it has microsoft security essentials but i don't think MSSE has web protection... is this a vista issue?
  3. for reals though, it looks like Bit Defender has something, but i don't know if it'll work on xp... if anybody KNOWS knows, let me know plz https://www.bitdefender.com/solutions/anti-ransomware-tool.html
  4. never heard of macrium, is that a drive imaging software? i've been thinkin about setting up my xp clients up on a virtual box so they can have a modern pc, and also the legacy stuff that won't run on a modern environment, however sometimes i've seen things still not play nice with a vbox... the sorcery is gonna be convincing em to let me spend the time to set that stuff up... & them to pay me for my time... cuz they need to catch up with the rest of us, atleast get to win7 FFS...
  5. one of my clients still has an XP system for his cad 97... he got hit by some ransomware, a new variant called locky, which encrypts everything & changes extensions to .lukitus... ANYWAYS long story short, after all my recovery methods failed, we looked up the ransom, which is usually ~ 300usd in bitcoins, this one was .5 btc which currently makes it over $2,000! says he doesn't need his data that bad... so as a future prevention i sold him on malwarebytes & afterwards we noticed the ransomare protection won't enable, likely cuz xp is just old AF... i need to know, is there any software for xp that can prevent ransomware, or is this something that xp just has to deal with? or, is this an error & perhaps mbam is supposed to still do it on xp??? to save time & keep his invoice low he says since his software still runs he didn't want me to continue operating to wipe & restore or anything, wants to keep running as-is, and his avast got screwed up as well, he thinks it was a paid version of avast & it wouldn't even run, didn't have enough time to mess with it, my 1hr was up & he didn't wanna pay to continue.
