If you're security savvy enough to run CryptoPrevent, you really should consider EMET as well: http://www.microsoft...s.aspx?id=41138

Ok...

 

I do have it set on Default......but it was the "may not protect against newer ransomware threats" that was making me wonder whether I should increase it.

 

I will now look into EMET too.

 

Thank you to both of you for your help. :)

This is where you need to apply a balance of protection against usability

The higher protections will mean you need to take extra steps when you install programmes, which for the average user may be a step to far
