Ok, so majority opinion is that an anti-ransomware will be waste of resources, thanks for the input everyone, one less thing to worry about now.:)
Just remember to keep that backup image file stored offline. Ransomware could encrypt any folders online and accessible by your system file paths.

Yeah my backup drive is only connected to the machine when creating backups.

Best antiramsonware be myself with the help of one antiexe like vodooshield, no virus thanks Osarmour + syshardener, with them i've the complete control unrepentant! I have tried severals anti-ramsonwares from cooking and I do not like them, unnecessary for me due to the consumption of resources, and they do not adapt to my needs, Irrelevant against zero day so to speak.

Avast is the best free anti-ransomware. (y)
You're joking, right? Comodo's sandbox once tweaked is much, MUCH better at protecting against ransomware than Avast lol. So is Kaspersky Anti ransomware tool. I'm not saying Avast is bad but it's far from the best free anti ransomware.Oh, and there's Voodooshield free and SAP. All of those products are free and all of them are better at protecting against ransomware than Avast. Avast free is a good AV and it's improving a lot, but it's nowhere near the best free anti ransomware.

Rising Sword Anti Ransomware--> China Av maker...Seems to use Machine Learning...Pretty light almost non -existent..Runs beside your av...
Rising products have huge potential but with Fp's....I have installed it..So far so good
For the Most of Zero days ...Rising are the very first vendors to have a Signature after Fortinet in VT...
Sincerely Yours.

be careful with new and unknown security suites, there has been an increase in fake softwares

@Electr0n I think you shouldn't add anything to avast+CF because CF itself is the best tool against ransomwares. avast and CF are conflict kings
avast can also be tweaked for better ransomware protection, better than most antiransomware out there

appcheck is the best antiransomware overall in my opinion because I have tested it for long time. I use avast+appcheck. you have CF so appcheck is completely redundant
Ransomoff might be better in strength but its compatibility issue is problematic
kaspersky antiransomware is good against old ransomwares due to its cloud signatures but far worse than appcheck against brand new ransomwares

If you have time, could you do the experiment to put it against other malwares? Just to see how it reacts.

Thank you!
I can't promise because I don't really have time to test products anymore
but I think it would be a bit unfair because ransomoff isn't designed to deal with other malwares
fortunately, other features can help it to deal with malwares (HIPS, applocker,...)

OK, no problem. My interest is because Cruelsister said that the software had extended capabilities to detect more than in theory should be.

It would be interesting to see that it can be achieved. Maybe a private test, not necessarily a public video. If someday you can do, please let us know the result :D

Thanks!
