Cryptolocker protection

Hello Folks. My periodical 'Computer Active' is advising the installation of this prevention kit:
CryptoPrevent | Computer Technician - PC Repair Software |Foolish IT LLC
Does anyone have any comments to make on this course of action?

What's Microsoft doing about Cryptolocker?
Why doesn't MS issue a patch or update to prevent Cryptolocker? Couldn't they provide a permanent solution along the lines of CryptoPrevent? Is the latter utility safe? - and any good? Apologies if this is old hat, couldn't find thsi specific query anywhere.
