My Norton 360 deletes the DAO trainer

Regarding the Mega Trainer 1.03 (STEAM/D2D), Unlimited Health, Mana, Party Healt....
I am an unlimited member and downloaded the Steam version of the DAO and Awakening Trainer. When I tried to open it (use it) my Norton 360 "Sonar" said it was doing things to my files and deleted it. Fortunately, I still had the download as a zipped file, but I'm afraid to try to open it again. What is happening and why is the Trainer playing with my files when I try to use it? What should I do short of disabling security on my computer altogether (which I will NOT do!). Is there a solution?

That's it I'm bookmarking the virus warning page.

Ok... I did another scan and Norton had quarantined the file because it was listed as "NEW" and had "FEW USERS" or about 10 in the "Norton Community". This supposedly made the file suspect. I restored the file and will let you know more later today when I try playing DAO again or Awakening. It does open now that I restored it and told Norton to allow it. Strangely, Norton updated my definitions (Virus and Trojan) right after it nullified the file the first time... so maybe the newer definitions would have allowed it anyway.
And thanks for posting the page about the virus warnings... That was helpful and gave me a place to begin when trying to figure out what to do next. You came through for me! For some reason, my Trainer for Mass Effect 2 did NOT set off any Norton warnings so that's what made me nervous when this one did. I guess this one is newer and/or has less users than the ME2 one does.
