It has been discussed that many of the ransomware programs use the vssadmin.exe program that wipes clean all volume shadow copys (restoration copies) to make recovery of your system impossible.
Discussions don't recommend disabling the shadow copy program (Recovery), just the vssadmin.exe which erases all recovery copies.

My question is that when I follow the instructions in the above article, and run the utility, it only allows me to alter one of the eight vssadmin.exe (and vssadmin.exe mui) files.
Specifically, the utility allowed me to get permission and change the name on the 64 bit version (so if hit my ransomware it will not find that file). But what about these vssadmin files? Do I need to do something about them?
This is a screen shot of the remaining search results for "vssadmin.exe" AFTER the 64 bit program was renamed in the above referenced link.
