I have a lot of crypto mining software on my PC which I know is safe but as soon as I install Norton, it wipes out a lot of software on my computer. Some stuff can't be recovered from Quarantine either. It also firewall blocks mining software even if I tell it that it's safe.
I have to system restore my computer to get it back to how it was but that doesn't always work so I'm scared to install Norton again.
But I have paid for it so want to give it another go.
How can I stop it from scanning my stuff before I get a change to add all exclusions?
And how do I force the firewall to stop blocking my mining? (other than the normal way)
