What are people saying about WinPatrol WAR

Sputnik A ransom of $14.97 for a WinAntiRansom's lifetime license is really very much less expansive than a $500.00 ransom from a ransomware ! ;-)
Feb 2 2016 at 4:55am Copy Link
Bret Lowry I wouldn't call it a ransom of $14.97, WinAntiRansom is a layered security solution all in one product. The first layer of defense is PreEmptive Strike that blocks Ransomware and most malware. The second is SafeZone which uses a list of allowed programs to block any unwanted program from touching your data. The third is Network/Share lockdown which also uses a list of allowed programs to prevent shared files from being encrypted. Shares and networked drives are a favorite target for Ransomware. Lastly is Protected Registry, this also uses a list of allowed programs to prevent tampering with your registry. WinAntiRansom has hundreds of built-in keys that it protects.
Best of all, with Easy mode, you can maintain all of those lists with a single click rather than independently. But, an independent mode is available for those who prefer that granularity of protection.
So is it a ransom? No. It is an innovative protection solution. :)

Roberto I use winpatrol and winprivacy. This tool replaces winpatrol?

Edward Smith Same question - I use Winpatrol - this replaces WinPatrol?
Feb 3 2016 at 6:03am Copy Link
Bret Lowry Hi, WinAntiRansom does not replace WinPatrol. The two perform very different functionality on your comptuer. WinPatrol acts monitors your computer for changes that indicate a possible malware infection or invasion of adware, but is not effective against Ransomware.
WinAntiRansom utilizes our anti-exploit engine to detect and block Ransomware BEFORE it can encrypt your data. In fact, WinAntiRansom has proven itself more effective than many AntiVirus in pro-actively detectign malware before you are infected, rather than after the infection has already taken place.
WinPatrol and WinAntiRansom are written to compliment one another as a part of a layered security solution.

Edward Smith Ok, so will WinPatrol, WinAntiRansom, Malwarebytes and ESET all play well together? I would not own a computer without WinPatrol on it, and I assume WinAntiRansom is as good, but at some point I may have protection stepping on each other.

Ken User You should really mention WinPatrol in the headline. I don't usually look at highly specific threat tools. Then I saw it is broader than it sounds, like program white listing. Then I saw the questions on WinPatrol and saw this was from Ruiware! That clinched it for me.
- Had WinPatrol been mentioned in the title I'd never skip it, which I almost did. Thank my dogs for waking me up early and having time to spare.
- I'm surprised I didn't heard about this product before now directly as a registered user of WinPatrol. I'l have to go see if you have other products I don't know about.

Bret Lowry Thank you for pointing out we need to make sure we to let people know WinAntiRansom is from WinPatrol.

Yes, WinAntiRansom works well with MalwareBytes and ESET without any toes getting stepped on.

Cary Adams I highly recommend that those considering purchase of WinAntiRansom read through their forum postings before deciding.

It should be noted that the WinAntiRansom developer acquired WinPatrol, so that anyone thinking that the WinPatrol reputation follows over to this product is making an illogical leap of judgement.

More accurately speaking WinAntiRansom is NOT from WinPatrol from a development standpoint, but only from a current owner. That's like saying that if Fiat purchased Porsche, that one would judge Fiat cars based on the Porsche pedigree, So wrong.

That is said not to cast aspersion over this offer, but to say that WinAntiRansom stands or falls on its own.

John User I am a long time user of WinPatrol Plus and IMO it is an absolute must for every PC. So impressed with it I purchased WinPrivacy and Win AntiRansom as well. Unfortunately, after having all three installed I had nothing but problems. I can't say if it was the WAR alone or in combination with the WinPrivacy. I can say I had no problems when I had just WinPatrol installed. The problems might also have resulted from upgrading to Windows 10.

The support at WinPatrol is outstanding. They did try to assist me with my problems, but I was finding I simply could not install new programs and some that had been installed would not run.

The only thing that fixed my system was to uninstall both WAR and WinPrivacy and do a fresh install of Windows 10. I kept WinPatrol Plus. When I did this everything was fine.

Ruiware did come out with several patches and a newsletter which sought to allay the fears and say the problems have been fixed. Maybe they have been, but having gone through quite a mess I am sticking with WinPatrol Plus and keeping WAR and WinPrivacy off my computer for now.

Bret Lowry Hi John User,

Please remember WinAntiRansom is a relatively new product. We did release an update just this morning that corrects issues we saw on Windows 10.

When WinAntiRansom first shipped, it did not do as good of a job as it should have in recognizing known good applications. We released an update in mid-January that dramatically improved it's ability to run w/o false positives.

We are continuing to keep on eye on things and fix any issues quickly.

Thank You,

Bret Lowry Yes, WinAntiRansom should play well with Hitman Pro Alert.

All of our products are designed to play well with all other security products.

Bret Lowry Hi Cary,

Thank you for pointing out we have a forum at
We have received a lot of feedback on this forum since we released WinAntiRansom on December 20, 2015 and have made fixes based on customer feedback.

How many other companies offer a Lifetime License and give you a direct connection to the people who can fix any issues?

MBe I think the best protection is to surf in a sandbox, with a program like sandboxie. Look into the sandboxie forum and search for ransomware. BTW, many thanks to bdj for the very good deal with lifetime licence of sandboxie not long ago, bye

Edward Smith I did purchase this today, however when I installed it on my windows 10 system the first two programs I tried to run would not run despite being white listed. When I tried to delete the program from my system, it froze up the system and I had to manually pull out the remaining items out of my registry. I wrote to support six hours ago but I have not heard back from them, leading me to believe I am not the only one having issues with this program. FYI, the website says this is a beta program. I would approach this installation with caution. While WinPatrol has served me well for many years, this product seems to cause problems.
Feb 5 2016 at 1:08pm Copy Link
Cary Adams @Edward Smith... WinPatrol and this product have separate developers. WinPrivacy and WinAntiRansom have a common developer (Brett, who has commented above).

A few months ago I purchased a lifetime version of WinPrivacy here at BDJ. After 3 frustrating weeks dealing with its oddities, I uninstalled it. Even if it had worked as intended it added nothing to my Firewall prevention.

WinAntiRansom is a beta product. And there are lots of growing pains. Maybe a year from now it will be workable. For now I use Malewarebytes Anti-Exploit (free) and Sandboxie (mentioned above - when I must wade into murkey waters). Those plus daily drive imaging as a fail-safe backup,

Steve Hull I have been using it virtually since its' release. I have been a WinPatrol user for many years so it was a "no brainer" as far as whether to get WinAntiRansom and I must say that I am very happy that I got it. It is a quality program and I feel much safer with it running in the background. For $7.47 it is one of the best bargains you will get as far as software goes.

Tortuga Hi Everybody :)
Any chance anyone know the difference between WAR and CryptoPrevent?
Purchased CryptoPrevent long before WinAntiRansom existed,
Long time user of WP, also bought WinPrivacy but have not yet installed yet.
Thanks in advance

Bret Lowry Hi PortablesFan, yes this product used to sold with a lifetime license, but in our move to an annual renewal model we created lower price points for single and three user purchases. The purchase is no longer user specific. Thank you for pointing out we missed that on a page.
Ruiware, LLC - Aug 21 2016 at 4:50am Copy Link
Bret Lowry Yes, WinAntiRansom was created to run alongside of your current security products, including your AV solutions.
We haven't seen many tests that include Norton security products, so we are unable to answer if it is effective against ransomware. In reviewing their site, they don't even mention ransomware,

Joe M Bret Lowery. I have used WinAntiRansom with Norton Security Suite from Comcast and I did not seem to have a problem with both programs running at the same time.

RS I know that another Ruiware title, WinPrivacy, triggers ongoing and repeated anti-tampering warnings and blocking actions by Norton Security, using system resources endlessly. I notified the developer of this conflict, and was promised that it would be addressed within a matters of months. More than a year later, the problem still remains, and it seems that it has been ignored in favor of focusing on the development of its new title, WinRansom. I'm a fan of Ruiware programs, along with WinPatrol; however, I believe that commitments should be kept and the focus should be on resolving problems with existing products before moving on to new projects.
