Thanks for previous help and advice.
Brand new desktop of a month or so,
Bought BitDefender for it, per a lot of advice on Forum.
My old PC was wiped out by one of thosE RansomWare trojans (Crypto...?), so am very concerned
that it doesn't happen again.
BitDefender's help system leaveS a lot to be desired, so thought I would ask here.
My assumption was that once installed, it "automatically" works to prevent any of these
Ransomware trojans, as well as the more conventional virus'.
But, apparently not ?
Had the PC a month with BitDefender, and for the first time a screen popped up asking what, if any, Folders
I would like to prevent being infected by Ransomware. You could then add as many, apparently, Folders as you would like.
I thought it worked on Everything in the PC, and certainly not that you had to specify which
ones (only) you wanted protected, and also that all of this was handled automatically without the user having
to specify "which ones" to protect..
Does this mean that if I neglected to add a Folder to their list, it is not protected from "any ransomware, Crypto, etc." ?
Why didn't this screen show up during the initial installation ?
Probably hopeless to try to get an answer from their Help Desk, so thought I would ask here.
Everyone here, as well as the W7 Forum are just so great and helpful.
Any thoughts on all of this would be most appreciated.
