Data Protector False Alarm


I do agree the Data Protector function is great and is able to block malicious behaviors performed by undetected ransomware. However, it may incorrectly block some actions performed by legitimate software that is unknown to Norton (reputation is low). When I try to uninstall a rare but safe piece of software, Data Protector blocks the uninstaller, causing the removal to fail.

By default, Data Protector will automatically block suspicious behaviors.

Allowing users to set Data Protector to "Ask Me" mode is a good method to solve the above issue, in my opinion.
