As the title said, I just got hit by teslacrypt. Fortunately, as the PC hit had nothing valuable on it, the virus didn't do any significant damage (more details here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/575875/new-teslacrypt-version-released-that-uses-the-exx-extension/?p=3893231).
Due to this experience, I want to get a solid protection tool. I used free Malwarebytes and Hitman for scanning for traces of that virus and I'm considering upgrading to the premium versions. So I have some questions:
Can you make Hitman scan only a specific drive/partition? In malwarebytes that is possible, but I have not seen any such option in Hitman.
Also, I see that malwarebytes seems to be the most recommended software of this kind in these forums. Is malwarebytes the "go to" tool for getting rid of malware and viruses?
Also, how good are Hitman and Kaspersky?
