Malwarebytes Anti Exploit and HitmanPro Alert

Recommended Posts

To help protect against ransomware and zero day exploits I used the free version of HitmanPro Alert since it came out.  I liked and trusted it and liked that it included Cryptoguard which prevented your drive from being encrypted.
But when I upgraded to Windows 10, it caused a crash on reboot and had to be uninstalled. Any attempt to reinstall caused a fatal stop error.

I debated trying their new version when it came out, but since it did not appear to have a try before you buy (to make sure it too did not cause a fatal stop error)  I have yet to reinstall it.

I did however recently learn of Malwarebytes Anti Exploit, designed to protect against such ransom ware.  It is lacking in the cryptoguard feature since that is owned by surfright)    You choose the free trial download and during install uncheck the "enable free trial of anti exploit premium" and you get the free version.  (I prefer this approach to the fourteen day trial of the pro).

Not really sure if it is as effective as HitmanPro Alert, but it does work well with minimal resource draw. Also it did not cause any fatal error.
