I have a Win7 machine dedicated to running SageTV that I want to protect from ransomeware. I tried HitManPro.Alert but it kept blocking SageTV from running. I tried setting SageTV.exe and other Sage associated exe files as exceptions for HitManPro.Alert, but this didn't fix it. Fortunately HitmanPro.Alert uninstalled cleanly and I have my functionality back.
After that long prologue, here is my question: What are the chances Installing CryptoPrevent will screw up my SageTV installation. Is it going to be straightforward to white-list it if CryptoPrevent blocks it? If I can't get it to work with CryptoPresent, will the latter uninstall cleanly so I can restore my ability to run SageTV?
Incidentally, my SageTV installation does not run SageTV from the Programs folder on the C: drive. I installed it on the H: drive to avoid known problems with Windows UAC. I'm wondering if running it from this unusual location tends to make programs such as HitManPro.Alert and CryptoPrevent think it is a rogue program so they block it.
Any suggestions appreciated.
By the way SageTV--the ultimate PVR program--is going open source which will make it an even more powerful solution, now that the way is open to incorporate new codecs and new video encoders.
