How Bitdefender Total Security build (BDTS) missed to detect 2 (two) trojan viruses?

Gjoksi DEFENDER OF THE YEAR 2022 ✭✭✭✭✭
The last two days my laptop became very slow, on Google Chrome i got an extension called "wRankBook" that i just couldn't uninstall and on Google Chrome i was redirected to some pages i have never visited. Then i thought my laptop could be infected. So, i did a Quick Scan, Full System Scan and Custom System Scan with BDTS. And in all 3 scans, BDTS found no threats, meaning that my laptop was virus free. Next, i did a scan with Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool 2020 version (KVRT) and KVRT found 2 (two) viruses: 1. MEM:Trojan.Win32.Agent.gen (located in System Memory) and 2. HEUR.Trojan.MSIL.Kryptik.gen (located in drive C). Really, really disappointed!
