NEARWOODCE Will Damage Your Computer' Message Description
NEARWOODCE is a suspicious file that the macOS will prevent from starting, and warn you about the potential danger it may pose. The good news is that macOS's reaction is a bit over the top, and NEARWOODCE is not associated with threatening activity at the moment. Instead, it would appear that the 'NEARWOODCE Will Damage Your Computer' message shows up when this software is trying to apply intrusive changes to the configuration of your Web browser. The changes in question are meant to expose you to additional advertisements while online, as well as to replace your homepage, new tab page or search aggregator with an alternative site.
Since the 'NEARWOODCE Will Damage Your Computer' message reveals the name of the problematic file, some users report trying to delete it manually. However, they state that deleting one copy was not enough and that the problem continues to occur. If you ever suspect that there is suspicious software on your computer, you should always resolve the issue with the use of an up-to-date security tool. Manual removal is not always helpful, because you are unlikely to find and delete all files related to the intrusive software.
