Still on Windows Defender.
Windows 10 doesn't like torrent clients that You use to download, for example, your favorite Linux distros.
In fact, in the last versions of Windows Defender many (I would say all) the bittorrent customers are defined as PUA (Potentially Unwanted Application).
The list seems to be long:
• uTorrent
• qBitTorrent
• Tixati
.... (other torrent clients)

Windows Defender deletes these programs without telling you anything (and despite You having defined them as safe).
(See this post of Microsoft Security Intelligence https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/wdsi/th ... 2/Utorrent)



For details I point out on TorrentFreak this post of Ernesto van der Sar (March 18, 2021) https://torrentfreak.com/utorrent-conti ... ne-210318/
