Anyway to keep Norton AV or IS from deleting files? How does quarantine work exactly?
I used Norton Antivirus for a year. It seemed good but I never had a detection. In options, I found no way to make sure NAV would never delete a file. I could only find an option of being asked how to handle low risk threat detection.
That never made me comfortable. I am/was worried that if a false positive, NAV might delete a system or program file in which case I would need to repair or re-install O/S or program.
Since my subscription ended a month ago, I have been using Avast 8 Free which allows me to set all detections to "Ask." That makes me feel more at ease with the program.
Is there a way to do that with Norton? Or perhaps Norton does not really ever delete anything, and only sends stuff to quarantine.
Basically, what I am asking: is there anyway to keep Norton from deleting ANY detections, or would Norton delete some threats with no way to recover the file?
