    Looks interesting. Would like to know how does it work. Is it using behavior analysis or is it just a simple brute blocker...

    Not really helping, but from the looks of it, Immunization option is separate from the actual protection and it's just an additional layer of protection, not the main protection feature of this app.

    I believe in 2016 hey rolled it out and integrated it in all their paid solutions,, todate I havent had any false positives/quarantines. Working good here.

    This tool was already discussed in some other thread. The conclusion was that it's not clear if the protection is behavior based and it also doesn't protect against all ransomware variants. That's why I decided not to use it.

    @daman1 No I don't, and I don't know if you get any more protection againt ransomware by using Bitdefender then by just using Anti Ransomware.

    After I installed Bitdefender AntiRansomware, CCleaner found obsolete registry items as shown below. I uninstalled BDAR and those registry items were no longer found by CCleaner. Anyone else noticed this? It made me uncomfortable, so I did not reinstall it.

    Obsolete software key F6F497u88 HKCU\Software\F6F497u88
    Obsolete software key Locky HKCU\Software\Locky

    The second key should prevent Locky from running. I don't know about the first one. You probably shouldn't remove them.
