Compatability with other Anti-Ransomware Programs

Recommended Posts

I'm not asking for a comparison of programs, nor an assertion as to which one is better...

 

but for the sake of anyone who is already using FoolishIT's CryptoPrevent, or Ruiware's WinAntiRansom, do they need to uninstall these first to avoid a conflict with MBARW?   Or can MABRW be added to a system with either of these other programs installed?

 

(I'm sure you'll assert these other programs are superfluous once MBARW is installed... but that's not what I'm asking here... just about conflicts, if any.)

We haven't tested those scenarios. But if you do test it alongside, please post your findings here. I'm sure it will be interesting for everybody.

Hi, I'm using the following security/anti malware/privacy programs with MBARW 0.9.4.299 on win 8.1 Pro

 

I stopped using CryptoMonitor as Malwarebytes owns the company that produced it and employs its owner, so I assume it will perform at least all of its functions. Confirmation of this would be useful, as the EasySync Solutions site had been mentioning a new and improved version for some time.

 

As to the relative protection provided by competing products and overlap or conflicts, that would be useful to know.

 

I've only had one minor issue with MBARW when it was very slow/unresponsive, which considering this is the first public beta might have been a compatibility issue, or entirely unrelated.

 

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the feedback. Its nice to know that MBARW hasn't really conflicted with your other products.

 

As for CryptoMonitor, you are correct. MBARW has everything and so much more than CM had, so if using the Beta i would recommend removing CryptoMonitor.

Thanks for the information Nathan. I had disabled CM before installing MBARW.

As MBARW seems like a keeper, I've uninstalled CM now.

 

I'd noticed the EasySync Solutions site had been down for some time. I'm surprised Malwarebytes hadn't redirected the url or put an announcement up to say that it had been bought by Malwarebytes. Had I known that, I would have waited before buying anti ransom software.

I see that a redirect is now in place.

Hello All:

 

The following seem to peacefully coexist for me so far:

 

CryptoPrevent v7.4.21 Protection Level = Default

MBARW v0.9.5.304 Beta2

W10Prox64 10586.71
