How to remove Uwasson
What is Uwasson
Numerous users have reported that their Windows Defender anti-virus program constantly detects Uwasson but does not get rid of it. No matter how many times users send it to quarantine, Windows Defender detects it over and over again. It is believed that Uwasson is a false positive, and Defender detects it when users download game cracks, mining applications and similar programs. This Windows security program, while a powerful malware removal software, tends to detect a lot of false positives, particularly related to gaming.
If your Windows Defender is flagging Uwasson as a potential threat, allow the program to quarantine the detected file. However, what will likely happen is you’ll see the detection alert again and again. To be sure that it is indeed a false positive, scan your computer with a different but still very reputable anti-virus program. If the second anti-virus program does not detect anything suspicious, you can either remove the cracked game/mining software that’s being flagged, or whitelist the detection.
Do you need to remove Uwasson
The detection Win32/Uwasson.A!m should not be confused with Win32/Uwamson.A!ml, which is a different matter. If Windows Defender is detecting Win32/Uwasson.A!m, it’s most likely a false positive and nothing to worry about. However, you should still get a second opinion and scan your device with another anti-malware software. Do not pick a random program, and opt for one that has a good reputation and is recommended by specialists. It likely will not detect anything, but it’s better to be safe than sorry. If nothing comes up in the scan, Windows Defender is most likely triggered by a false positive. In this case, your options are either to delete the file or whitelist it.
