Which is the best antivirus for Ransomware?

#1
As ransomware attacks are the scariest of all the other forms of malware, could anyone tell me how to prevent ransomware infection and also suggest the best antivirus for protection against ransomware.

I wouldn't say there is ever a "best solution" to anything. Any security analyst/engineer will preach defense in depth or multiple layers of protection is the best strategy.

  • Installing all OS and software updates
  • Having a firewall
  • Installing a highly rated AV/AM product ( i recommend Webroot Secure Anywhere)
  • Remove applications you don't use
  • Run your computer with a standard account and only use the admin account for administrative tasks
  • Keep UAC turned on
  • Install EMET and set it to max security
  • Download software from reputable sources
These are a few things that you can do/install to help keep your system protected.
