Greetings all,

Was downloading the new patch and my Norton 360 went into a slow motion action hero moment and said "Nnnnooooooooo" and knocked the patch out of my greedy hands. I find it odd because the description of this threat was reports from the community. Anyone else seen this happen?

The installer for Distant Worlds always triggered a flase positive with my virus scanner as well.

Norton is overtly... picky, in my experience.

Norton is positively the worst antivirus ever and seems to think that pretty much everything is a threat.
Paranoid antivirus software if ever I seen one.

Is that a professional opinion?

Yes.
Using Norton is about as much fun as unanaesthetised bowel surgery.

I am sorry; I do not have the same opinion about Norton; I personally like it over others... My opinion, not countering anyone elses dislike...
And I set mine for maximim hueristics...

ANYWAY:
Set your anti-virus to ask you what you want to do with a file.
It always sends up a red-alert claxon when I download from Matrix because of the small number of downloads to say a DW patch.
So when it asks, I tell it to accept and then it usually says, 'file ok' after a couple of minutes.

It is the small number of downloads that is triggering Norton; if you have it ask you, you can override.

I wouldn't say 'ever'. It was pretty good in 1996. ;)
