NS removed a file & I might want it back.

NS 22.9 just removed a file it said was malicious, or words to that effect. I only caught a glimpse of the name before it quickly disappeared from the screen but it was a dll file. It's not in Quarantine. How do find our what it was and if I need it for a program that I might use in the next day or two? I was never offered an option to keep or delete or quarantine. I got the message it was removed & that was that. Where is it so that I can make the determination what to do with it?

Re: NS removed a file & I might want it back.

Hello

Please check the Resolved Security Risks. Security>History>On dropdown, go to Resolved Security Risks and see if it's listed there. If it's there, then hit More Options. It should say the name of the .dll.. On the bottom, there should be an option to Restore. I'm not sure if that will Restore the file or not. Only do this if you are sure that the .dll is clean.

Thanks.

The only thing there is from 2 months ago.

What gives NS the right to take my stuff without my permission? Isn't that called stealing?
