Norton blocks the bitcoin miner but wont delete it?

I recently got the trial for Norton because there’s an obvious virus on my PC that Windows Defender / AntiMalwareBytes couldn’t remove. Before I even initiated a scan a pop up showed there was a bitcoin miner on my system and showed that it was blocking the traffic. So I did a full system scan and to my surprise the bitcoin miner didn’t show up in this scan. About 5 minutes later another pop up showed that a bitcoin miner was blocked. If there was a bitcoin miner on my PC why wouldn’t the full scan reveal this and remove it?



Run the malwarebytes analysis but now with Windows in safe mode.
