Re: Ransomware Protection

Yes, I would also say that it is acceptable with the bitma. It is the other two files that bothers me, as I can not set what kind of files it is.

So should I trust F-Secure or Syhunter?

Just to be safe I scanned the computer with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, and it did not find any malicious files, so I choose to trust the two programs (F-Secure and Malwarebytes) against the one (Spyhunter). - And hope I will not regret it Smiley Happy

Re: Ransomware Protection

SpyHunter - Scanner dubious reputation strongly jumped in the results of Google and applying techniques of manipulation leaning installation. Google whole bunch of highly positioned descriptions of "removing malware" designed in such a way to download SpyHunter as a marvelous free treatment for an infection. After installation, it turns out that this is a paid program.

 

Overall, this is **bleep**

 

To scan your computer from time to time I recommend (in that order)
1) Eset Online Scanner
2) Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (free) / Emsisoft Emergency Kit
3) HitmanPro / Zemana Antimalware

F-Secure and the above 3 points on demand, and the computer sound like a fish :)
