Is it normal this behavior of W10Privacy?


Recommended Posts

Excuse me, I am not very sure if this happened also when I opened it without "Run as administrator"
But as soon as I "Run as administrator" antivirus HIPS:
Application;Operation;Target;Action;Rule;Additional information
C:\Windows\System32\consent.exe;Modify startup settings;HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\internat.exe;allowed;Automatic mode;
Application;Operation;Target;Action;Rule;Additional information
C:\Windows\System32\services.exe;Modify startup settings;HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\TrustedInstaller\Start;allowed;Automatic mode;
Can anyone say please that this is normal?
Thank you.

According to multiple sources, W10Privacy is a legitimate program. Keep in mind that these programs will often messes up with Windows default settings as they try to disable telemetry, data collection, etc. features from the OS itself, so some security products (like ESET) might flag these modifications as unwanted and/or potentially malicious. This is probably why ESET gave you these alerts earlier.
