Does malware-bytes anti-ransomware protect sufficiently ? Or does it allow certain ones to pass, so that I must take other measures. I am using G Data Internet Security OEM version as antivirus.

"MalwareBytes Anti-Ransomware" is not a general anti-virus product but is focussed towards Ransomware in particular.

There is no anti-virus product that finds everything and opinions abound about which ones are best. You need a general one as well and G Data is one of the many.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Hi again willem.

"Or does it allow certain ones to pass, so that I must take other measures"
The badies are always ahead of the goodies, you have to be vigilant, if you get a warning message you do not understand, google that exact message before proceeding.

I have been using this extra layer of security for 6 mnths.

"Cybereason RansomFree" is another product which is focussed on Ransomware, as is MalwareBytes Anti-Ransomware. As John said, it is "an extra layer".

As per #1, you still need a general background anti-virus program that runs in the background at all times. If you have MS Windows Defender (free) that will do so, as will G Data. An anti-ransomware product is insufficient because that is only one of many possible threats.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
