Nick, of Foolish IT LLC, was kind enough to offer BleepingComputer.com members a permanent 30% discount off of his CryptoPrevent Premium and dMaintenance Home Edition Premium programs. To take advantage of this offer simply use coupon code bleeping30off when checking out. This discount brings the normal cost of $15 for each of these programs to $10.50. Details about each program can be found below:

CryptoPrevent Premium is a program that configures various Windows policies that prevent executables from running when they are located in non-standard locations such as the %Temp%, %AppData%, and %UserProfile% folders. These locations were not designed to store executables and are a common place for malware to store files and launch from. With this said, CryptoPrevent makes it impossible for these executables to start and thus effectively eliminates their threat. Though you can use the free CryptoPrevent version to setup these Policies, the Premium version includes some very useful features. These features include automatic and silent updating of application and definitions on a regular schedule, email alerts when an application blocked, and custom allow and block policies to fine-tune your protection.

dMaintenance Home Edition Premium is a maintenance suite that performs a variety of housekeeping tasks on your Windows computer. These tasks include:
  • Clear Print Queue
  • Delete Temp Files
  • Delete Temp Internet Files
  • Delete Internet History
  • Delete Cookies
  • Runs Cleanmgr.exe
  • Delete %windir%\$NTUninst dirs
  • Executes ProcessIdleTasks
  • Performs an anti-malware scan
The premium version of dMaintenance allows you to perform these tasks on a scheduled basis, deliver reports via email, automatically update the software, and unlocks certain maintenance options.

Three cheers for Nick, Lawrence and Bleeping Computer!  I tried CryptoPrevent (CP) on several machines and it installs and works like it should.  Executables in several AppData folders wouldn't run and, while I certainly don't know enough to give it a solid test, that's good enough for me.  I read about the new MAX + Program Filtering mode in v7.3.5 and decided to try that version and license it at the same time.  Good news right off the bat...

 

The new policies CP put in place had one desired effect right away.  Foxit PDF reader calls its updater when it runs, but the updater is located in Local>Temp so CP's policy rules kept it from running.  I had been running last week's CP and was going to have to figure out how to manually allow the updater.  I installed v7.3.5 set to MAX+filtering, then ran Foxit to get the updater's path to whitelist it.  I was very pleasantly surprised when CP asked ME if I wanted to allow the updater!  It also asked me if I wanted to allow DropBox, which lives in AppData>Roaming.  

 

Their white/blacklist interface is comprehensive (haven't figured out yet whether it maintains a listing of the programs I tell it to whitelist - the box was empty even after allowing the updater), but even better is that I don't have to get too deeply into it or learn how to manually edit security policies.  I know - I should learn - and I will - some day - when I have the spare time.  Meanwhile, I'll pay Nick to do it for me.  

 

Just to qualify myself - I'm one of those whacko's who run paid versions of MBAM, SAS and Norton360.  Most people on this forum are probably laughing at me, but that's alright; I've made it for years without an infestation and will do my best to keep them from the family's PCs.  There are too many criminals after my money and a few bucks a year in prevention seems like a pretty good deal.  Chalk it up to the price of computing in these crooked times.  Are these three programs complimentary or overlapping?  I've read opinions on all sides of the discussion and haven't seen one compelling reason to ditch any of them.  As long as they aren't conflicting with each other, I'm running them.  

 

I urge everyone to license the Pro version of CryptoPrevent after you try it and find out how slick it is.  Auto-updating and some other things come with it, PLUS licensing software like this (it's cost makes licensing the pro version a no-brainer, especially with BC's discount code that just worked for me for a combo license for the family's machines and another CP license for a business PC) keeps Nick and other developers like him improving their programs and staying on top of the blackhats so we can get on with other things.  I have no connection with either Nick, Lawrence or BC but, unless I'm really wrong, know a great value proposition when I see one.

 

Alan

I am purchasing 100 copies of the CryptoPrevent Premium Bulk/Resale Edition License Pack (100 Pack)  From the information on this page it says that if you use the Coupon Code: bleeping30off, you will get a discount, but when I enter this on Foolish It site, it says

Cart does not meet the minimum requirement for this coupon!

yet, there is nothing on this page that says anything about a specific quantity or any specific requirements needed to get the discount.

I am still purchasing the product, because my clients need the protection and I believe in the product. Just disappointed in the miss-information. DJ

Sen't an email off to them. If you do not hear directly from them, you will be hearing from me.

Let me first apologize for not responding here sooner, and also for obviously not being more clear with my original communications!  

 

This discount was intended for our "home use" software, including individually licensed copies of CryptoPrevent Premium and dMaintenance Home Edition.  Just prior to providing this discount for BleepingComputer readers, we had given CryptoPrevent Bulk/Resale Edition (intended for business use or resale) a reasonable price reduction based on the quantity purchased, while simultaneously adding some functionality specifically useful to that edition.  As a result, additional discounts were not extended to include the Bulk/Resale Edition.      

 

Unfortunately we are not able to easily substitute different error message text for the single error message provided by the shopping cart software we are currently using, the main complication being the need to vary that message depending on what item didn't meet what specific criteria for whatever reason.  The coupon redemption conditions were not published on the website as it would effectively be like directly posting the code, and removing any added value from the code for the customer who has it.  

 

So let me apologize again, for the additional confusion this has caused!  Surprisingly, this is also the first we have heard of the confusion, or that someone was unable to validate the coupon code for that product; but we will attempt to address these issues causing confusion immediately.
