What we are doing to prevent it is to create a new local security policy or a GPO for an AD network domain that prevents any EXE's running from within %AppData%

This works because this is where Cryptolocker runs.

You might find you have to create whitelist entries to allow required programs to run, i.e. some installers/updaters etc but this does work well.  We've had no infections once doing this for customers.
