I was running MSERT to address another Windows 10 issue and the tool fished out the following file VirTool:Win32/DefenderTamperingRestore (malware/Trojan??). Not sure for how long this file has been on my computer and what personal/secure information has been compromised.
I read that Windows Defender is able to detect and remove this type of malware/Trojan. Ironically, installing Norton disables Windows Defender and in the process may be putting our information at risk.
I have been a long time Norton user, but after this incidence, I am beginning to be suspicious of the protection provided.
Just wondering why Norton 360 (for which one spends $$s) failed to detect this. Also, why is Norton not doing anything about it.
