Norton Security is removing Auslogics Disk Defrag
I am running the latest Norton Security v.22.214.171.124 on Windows 10 Pro (1607), which is detecting the latest Auslogics Disk Defrag 126.96.36.199 as a "threat" and then removes it from my PC. To be sure that NS is in fact doing this, I have reinstalled Auslogics Disk Defrag multiple times, and the same sequence of events happen. I have been using both Auslogics Disk Defrag and NIS/NS for many, many years without any problems. This behavior started after the latest NS product update. Here is the sequence of events:
- Auslogics Disk Defrag 188.8.131.52 is installed. It runs fine for one or two days thereafter.
- One or two days later, I get a "Security Request" window from NS. It goes along the lines of "Your computer must restart to continue removing Security Risks."
- I click on "OK" to restart Windows 10.
- Once the restart completes, Auslogics Disk Defrag is no longer a program on my PC. (No Start shortcut; No reference of it in Control Panel > Programs and Features)
Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
