In the last two months my PC got infected with VirTool:Win32/DefenderTamperingRestore, TWICE.
My Norton 360 does not seem to detect it at all. Neither does Norton Power Eraser.
I realized my PC was acting funny, I ran the antivirus... nothing. I ran NPE... nothing came out either. Everything was green. But my PC was still acted weird, so I checked the Task Administrator in my PC and saw things that were taking too many resources in my PC, then begun looking in Internet forums. I found a possible fix and tried it. It did work, but came out with the news that it had detected, and removed, this virus Norton had let slip through.
The tool I used was Microsoft Safety Scanner that can be downloaded in their official website. I ran it in secure mode, and voilá! The issue was fixed.
I did get tech support from Norton and they did a thorough check of my computer to make sure that everything was gone, and it was. Thanks to Microsoft! Not to Norton.
What worries me is that today I got the same problem, again! And Norton detected nothing! I was downloading a few fonts - I'm a designer, from a "safe" website I will never, ever, visit again, and BANG! While Norton was "asleep".
How can this be fixed? Why is Norton not detecting this virus? Power Eraser is not detecting it either!
Has anyone else had had a similar problem? Have you found a solution?
Thanks, and have a very nice day.
