    Yes, definitely protect yourself from apps like JRT and ComboFix where you have no control over what they may delete.

    Honestly, I don't understand the reasoning behind this kind of concept. IMO apps coded in this manner leave an impression of programming laziness or inexperience.

    From what I know, JRT technology is slowly being rolled in Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, but there's no ETA as to when it'll be fully rolled in.

    If I'm allowed to take a guess, it should be done by version 3. I can see that be part of a major version release.
