RansomOff destroyed my system yesterday, after rebooting; firefox, office and all other programs including NPE EEK stopped working including bitdefender free which could not be started :(
Nice to know that not only happened to me such an adventure, in me so just stopped running some programs and generally the entire cluster of misfortunes. In my case, the situation is tragic because I can not reinstall the system with personal files keeping, and I do not have nothing to copy them.

You don't have it up there, but I would choose AppCheck Pro (which I have)
over RansomOff, until they get all their ducks in a row and workout the bugs,
then RansomOff would be a valid contender. ;)

After installing RansomOff, my AV was disabled.

AppCheck is a lot kinder to the system.

Hi @shmu26. What AV are you using?

We've been working on ways to make RansomOff play nicer with AV. The most recent release (5.2017.116.6374) now automatically detects installed AV (if registered with Windows) and adds an exemption which should mitigate compatibility issues.

I used Kaspersky Internet Security 2017, at the time I had this issue.
To tell you the truth, I was surprised how easy it is to neutralize Kaspersky.

Hi @WinXPert

Are you not able to install the latest version? Looking back at some past messages, you had issues with a very early release ("Dll not found error"). If you are not able to install the latest, is there some message you are getting? Thanks.

In all fairness to Kaspersky, once code executes in the kernel space nothing is safe anymore. It's not that RansomOff was specifically targeting Kaspersky but anti-malware products behave a lot like malware and RansomOff was trying to enforce some commonly held assumptions about process interactions. That enforcement obviously doesn't sit well with Kaspersky (or probably most AVs). With the latest RansomOff release, we enhanced the exemption process so once an application is added there shouldn't be any issues even at start up.
