NoVirusThanks SysHardener is intended to bolster your Windows settings specifically to mitigate against a multitude of cybersecurity threats.
NoVirusThanks SysHardener can not only be used for your home network but at work as well. Ransomware can be spread via email as malicious attachments like DOC, XLS, VBS, JS, JSE, WSF. With NoVirusThanks SysHardener, you can simply unassociate these (uncommon) file types. So if someone attempts to open a .js file type, for instance, it will not open. It will mitigate Microsoft Office exploits by allowing you to disable Macros, OLE and ActiveX, and Windows Script Host (wscript.exe) ensuring that JS, VBE, VBS, and WSH scripts will fail to execute. It also includes a few smart Windows Firewall rules for quick blocking of outbound connections for commonly hijacked programs so they cannot download remote files or transmit data. Additionally, it will allow you to enable UAC which is frequently disabled by malware. All setting changes can be restored to default with a single click.
NoVirusThanks puts out some great tools, and SysHardener is no exception. It is easy-to-use and already comes with some common points already checked off by default as well as providing you with some guidance on certain essential processes and services with color-coded warnings that when hovered over give insight or a warning before you decide to enable/disable them.
