    It's a great idea. Hopefully they can use this beta test to perfect it a bit.

    That part is quite annoying. I tested CCleaner64.exe also and could not stop it deleting it as the button to override doesn't work yet.

    You can copy the exe to desktop, add a quarantine rule, reboot (which deletes it) and then copy the exe back. That is easier than reinstalling (perhaps).

    If you look on their forums there is a whole list of programs being flagged as false positive as well as CCleaner - ESET, McAfee, Norton, Google chrome, Firefox, hostsman, superantispyware...

    Obviously it is still beta and getting reports of these false positives is what they are after...
    That is Exactly what they are after and asking you to submit a zip file of the logs

    This is huge! Having worked in IT store in past, we've received bunch of PC's that were infected with ransomware and people just had no idea what to do to prevent this from happening in the future since one of the usual advices "don't download stuff from emails from people you don't know" never really worked.

    I hope it won't be in beta for too long and they'll be able to fix all the issues they've got right now. Having said that, I won't just sit on my ass and wait for beta to end but I'll download it and use it and report stuff that seem off to me!

    Hi:

    This is BETA software.

    Please report false-positives and other issues HERE.
    That is the best venue to assist the devs with improving the product.

    Also, a new, beta2 build will be released later today to correct some issues: Doesnt prevent infection after reboot - Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware Beta - Malwarebytes Forum

    Watch this forum for announcements

    Also, this pinned topic explains the rationale for layered, anti-ransomware protection (offered "as is"):
    I have MBAM and MBAE. Why do I need Anti-Ransomware?

    Cheers,

    Happy to report a popup said new version available with legitimate programs filtered. Installed, opened, removed CC Cleaner from Exclusions list and ran CC Cleaner just fine. Good to see such fast repair to false positive.

    From MB forum:

    Is malwarebytes testing this on all windows operating system 7 & above? If I am not mistaking the video is only showing windows 7.
