WS.Reputation.1 is a detection for files that have a  low reputation score based on analyzing data from Symantec’s community  of users and therefore are likely to be security risks. Detections of  this type are based on Symantec’s reputation-based security technology.  Because this detection is based on a reputation score, it does not  represent a specific class of threat like adware or spyware, but instead  applies to all threat categories. 

The reputation-based system uses "the wisdom of crowds" (Symantec’s  tens of millions of end users) connected to cloud-based intelligence to  compute a reputation score for an application, and in the process  identify malicious software in an entirely new way beyond traditional  signatures and behavior-based detection techniques.[b]Antivirus Protection Dates[/b]

Microsoft Security Essentials is free as well and doesn't slow down your system.

Norton works fairly well for me, but yes it did attempt to remove the installers for me as well. Solution: just tell it to put them back and ignore them. :)

 

I'd rather have false positives than false negatives, even if it is inconvenient.

I had heard Norton was better these days.. but i gave up using over 15 years ago due to its excessive resource usage. It used to be horrible on poor old PCs with very limited resources.

 

Vipre is what i use these days.

There's no guarantee that getting one saves you from the other, though.

Quite true, but an "overeager" heuristic is likely to correlate with capturing more real threats.

 

The key point, however, is that false positives themselves should not be taken as an argument against a given AV solution; unless they are so numerous that they impair productivity or through incomplete features (like some of the free ones I've seen) cause damage. (For example, the one offered by Nordea a while back to it's customers was great at finding threats, but had no real quarantine function, meaning that false positives were genuinely destructive; when I gave it a test-run it would perform total annihilation on anything and everything it suspected of being a threat, nuking it completely from the system.)

 

In the case of Norton, a false positive is an inconvenience that happens once every couple of months and takes all of a few seconds to "fix". (My one annoyance is that the quick-fix requires that you spot it doing it while the information popup is there on-screen, otherwise you have to go through the log.)

 

The tests I've seen show Norton scoring quite well as far as actual protection goes - considerably better than Microsoft SE, Lavasoft, ESET, Avira, and very high as far as useability goes. Does a good job of keeping quiet in the background when it's not needed and can very easily be set to quiet game mode where it doesn't interfere. Is there other ones that are better? Quite likely - some will be slightly better at one thing, worse at others. Bit-defender is apparently better at threat-detection, for example.

 

Analogy: is a bouncer doing a bad job if he asks someone for ID and it turns out the person was old enough to enter the establishment? As long as the bouncer doesn't shoot everyone it even suspects of being underage on sight...

Epic fail!!!!!!!!

 

So someone's opinion gets it deleted from your drive.... nice.

 

All AV is junk - get rid of it. If you get viruses often, you want to ask yourself what it is you're doing that is causing you to encounter them so often.

 

Best regards,

Tango.

Norton not remove Game in windows

 

is remove Setup instalations

 

disable antivirus installer game no probleme +activate anti

 

No it doesn't.

 

It quarantines the file that was flagged by the heuristic.

You press one button and it will restore the file, greenflag it, and the crowdsourcing is that if a lot of people do this it'll greenflag it on all customer computers as long as it doesn't violate anything other than the heuristic.

 

Tango, what is your exploit and zero-day protection? You are aware that simply being connected to the internet is enough to make you a target? You don't have to "do" anything. It is a very simple thing to make a program that continually scans IP's and tests a whole barrage of potential vulnerabilities on each one, and then automatically attacks through the ones that return a positive. Similarly, you can manually attack something like and adserver, and then get all ads served by that service to distribute attack attempts, meaning that you can get attacked through visiting any site that has advertisements.

 

Being careful with which sites you visit and what you counsciously download is NOT enough.

Vipre is what i use these days.

 

Same here, haven't had NAV on any PC I own for about the same time. I thought about trying it again, but a friend got ripped off by upgrading to a newer version, right after they had renewed. Norton wouldn't apply the renewal to the new version.

 

Been using Vipre too, original company (Sunbelt Software) was aces to deal with, haven't had much interaction with new owners...

Yes it does. Exactly this happened to my parents when my father downloaded the massive demo of a racing game he wanted to try which took about 3 hours on their crappy connection.

 

Norton sucks. It gives false positives all the time and doesnt detect real threats.

I don't care for Norton, but I certainly am not going to hook a PC to the internet without some kind of AV software. I wouldn't do it at work, inside the corporate firewall, and I sure would not do it at home.

This isn't totaly without risk. but in todays Virus makers world creating virus programs that are lucritive is way more popular than the old days.

 

I worked at a PC repair shop. and had not seen a PC brought in for a virus in yrs. after about 1998 or so Viru writters turned toward making money on their creations and infultrating Corperate Intranets to turn a profit from their efforts landing in jail got you a 5 figure income upon release to do security for the company you exploited.

 

So getting a virus today that FUBARS your PC is very rare. But Nortons and the others still use the "Mass Histaria" Ideology to keep their market opened.

 

I do not use a Virus Progam. To invasive for my liking. I would just remove the Virus myself. a new program or file isn't hard to hunt down if you have experience with you Operating System.
