I use their product, but it is only one of several that I use (that are "always" on guard) against a variety of potential attacks on my devices.
You can check-out their product, along with others, as tested by an independent lab: AV-Comparatives
I don't know about the ransomware protection, but Creator's update removed the Windows 7 games (winaero) from my Windows 10 PC. I had to reinstall them. This is the 2nd time a windows 10 update has removed them.
Removed? Or just disabled or removed the program's START icon/link? Did you try installing them with Administrator rights? If that didn't work, have you queried Microsoft Support about it?
Hard to say, since I reinstalled them yesterday - the file location has yesterday's date. I had the games on my Surface & they were removed with the last creator's update - not sure when I installed that one. I couldn't find any trace of the games.
I should have been more clear... does it remove all of the files & folders, or just the executable ICON/LINK? Next time it happens (hopefully it won't), before you reinstall, look for the affected programs' FOLDER and FILES.
I don't like the Windows 10 user interface, so I installed CLASSIC SHELL. Using that utility, I have a more familiar (after decades of using a Windows OS) and more functional desktop--similar to that of Win7, WinXP and previous version of the Windows OS.
I also use this Desktop Save and Restore utility. I arrange Desktop ICONs to my liking, but sometimes (going to SAFE MODE, for example) those get rearranged. The utility adds SAVE DESKTOP and RESTORE DESKTOP options to the right-click menu. Once I get ICONs where I want them, I right-click on an empty area of the desktop and click the SAVE DESKTOP option. Then if someone else (or some program/function) rearranges them... I simply right-click and then click the RESTORE DESKTOP option. Voilà, everything is back the way I want it to be.
I might like that interface. I have gotten used to the Windows 10 look, though. The Creator's Update must not have wiped all of the game files - my cumulative wins & losses are still in place. If it happens again, I will check Program Files before reinstalling
If you want to give CLASSIC SHELL a test drive...
it SHOULD be uninstalled, following this procedure.
I won't ever go back to the Win10 UI.
