Publisher's Description

Free tool which removes certain types of randomware from a PC:

CryptoPrevent is a tiny utility to lock down any Windows OS to prevent infection by the Cryptolocker malware or ‘ransomware’, which encrypts personal files and then offers decryption for a paid ransom.

CryptoPrevent artificially implants group policy objects into the registry in order to block certain executables in certain locations from running. Note that because the group policy objects are artificially created, they will not display in the Group Policy Editor on a Professional version of Windows — but rest assured they are still there!

CryptoPrevent features and highlights:
  • CryptoLocker and copycat protection (malware that encrypts your files for a ransom)
  • Protection from fake file extensions and other attacks found in most trojan based malware
  • Over 250 policy rules created to block malicious executables depending on options selected
  • Options to disable certain types of protection or rules, and optionally to remove rules individually as necessary
  • Event viewer for examining the event details and the rule that blocked any application
  • Manual updating of both the application and definition files

CryptoPrevent is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from antivirus without restrictions. CryptoPrevent is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).
