    The Locky-Signed sample did not trigger the behavior blocker.

    Still a bunch of bugs in file quarantining. Lots of unexpected behaviors.

    What bothers me about GDATA is its impact on performance. Apparently, the impact would be smaller, can you confirm that?

    I see no difference because I am on i7 SSD systems. In my experience it is not heavy. Actually it is hardly noticeable.

    Regardless of what anyone says you have to run the trial to see how it impacts performance on your specific system.

    Try to set real time monitoring to "Only check on execution" and enable critical area monitoring to your likening like in image below. I get real good performance with these settings.

    I just tested it on another computer with windows 10.
    Apparently, I don't see any slowdowns. Gdata seems to have improved on this point.

    25.4.0.1 was 2017. version, and suddenly 25.4.0.2 is 2018. :confused: They are for sure on top with it's Behavior Blocker and AV detection technologies, but they are behind in fixing existing bugs and updating older components. I'm not really sure what they are doing, since e-mail support requests isn't answering for weeks. Also, there's no noticable changes/innovations in 2018. version. Not really a happy G Data customer lately. I had higher expectations for it's new version, sadly it's just number changes..

    From what I saw, basically, 2018 = 2017.

    A great antivirus doesn't need big chances. I'm waiting for the update. No antivirus is perfect

    You can add any folder that you find sensitive and that check on "Read/Write" is needed instead of "On execution only". I added the root Appdata for the actual current user, which should be "c:\users\youruser\appdata". And downloads folder because I want files that I download to be also checked on read/write.
