    Simple- if a program is NOT in the white list, when an attempt is made to execute it, the user has to approve that.

    A large prompt appears warning the user about various aspects of the program.

    Years ago Zonealarm's firewall used to do this.
    So whitelisting is another form of protection essentially? Are people commonly doing it right now, if so what programs?

    Yes. Any new 'unknown' unapproved program is trapped- exe's, dll's...

    As far as I know at present there are only commercial programs around that do it. But any of the major AV suites could potentially include it- I just don't know- one of the AV review sites could help there.

    I got a giveaway copy of SecureAPlus

    which includes multi-engine cloud scanning as well.

    It can automatically whitelist everything already on the PC, so easy to configure initially.

    It imposes little apparent overhead, but there is one conflict on my system where unlocking Avast's updated signature file causes it to generate a BSOD...! Support is actively looking into this.

    Hello.

    I have tried BitDefender Antiransomware and it loads faster than RansomFree. The fastest of all is still Cryptoprevent.

    What do you mean by it's faster?

    It seems the other two (RansomFree and BDAR) install services and such and put an icon at the system tray. They are somewhat slow when loading. Cryptoprevent, on the other hand, just seems to "tweak" some group policies; it doesn't has got any visible icon at the system tray and it seems to have nay impact on boot times.

    Someone correct me if I am wrong.

    According to booting slowness: Ransomfree << BitDefender AntiRansomware << Cryptoprevent v8

    Cryptoprevent v8 has 3 services running, Email service, Folder Watch service and Monitor service.

    I'm pretty sure the old version didn't have services, at least not visible any way. These services appear to use no more than 0% Cpu usage...
