Why is Norton 360 removing cheats from here with SONAR, before they can even run?

Are you doing something dangerous according to Norton? If so, what?

The purpose of the SONAR component of Norton is to detect malware based on the behavior of files and how they interact with the computer. Because of this, the probability of false positives increases a lot and requires Norton to release definition updates for white listed files (ones that are safe, but get caught by the program because of the way they behave).

Trainers work by injecting new values into the game's memory when it runs. When it does this, it overrides very specific variables that govern the player's stats to give you infinite money, health, etc. This is also the same technique that many pieces of malware work (imagine injecting information into the Operating System's special memory with instructions to open an elevated command shell). Because of this behavior, SONAR will detect the trainer in a false positive.

Unfortunately, trainers are not considered "high profile" enough to be given priority to be white listed in anti-virus updates. You have to configure Norton to whitelist all Cheat Happen's trainers or disable the component as a workaround (check your program's documentation for how to do this).

This is an expanded explanation of the one that can be found here (which is displayed in nice big red text on the post screen for a new topic so you can understand some frustration you may receive from other users and staff) : Link

I have never had that problem. Just because you got a virus, doesn't mean it was Norton.

ON TOPIC: Just tell Nortan to make an exception for the trainers. There may be a way to make it allow all of them, if not, then you will have to do it for each one.

I created a exclude folder on my hard drive, and all trainers are saved there, and Norton is not allowed to scan or monitor there.
