I have been infected in the past with Ransome wear. What do I do if this happens again and I am covered with Webroot?

Also, to add to Baldrick's (and Neil Rubenking's) comments, do be aware that although Webroot is very effective at blocking ransomware and, in the extremely unlikely event that any ransomware does get through to your device(s), Webroot's "journaling and rollback"
feature is also highly effective in unencrypting any encrypted files:
- As Webroot is getting more on more on the radar of ransomware writers, a few ransomware authors are trying specifically to target that feature
- So on the one hand, I do honestly believe that Webroot provides the best protection of the AV pack overall, and not only for ransomware but for all kinds of malware
- But on the other, no AV is perfect and therefore it is always prudent to have a sound backup routine as a final line of defence
Hope that helps!
