Hello, everyone, I have noticed on some posts that the Antivirus programs are detecting Trainers as Trojans, I have been getting my Trainers quarantined by Norton Internet Security 2010, I have tried to restore the files but Norton just keeps doing it even after I have selected the option not to scan again and have isolated the trainers folder from scanning. Have anyone got a solution to this? I'm about to go back to an older version of Norton Antivirus so this will go away since this never happened to me while I had it in the past. I've been a member for quite sometime so I'm not questioning the Cheat Happens Pros in any way shape or form, I know it's Norton doing what the Antivirus program is designed to do, but I think it's doing it too well. Any positive, constructive feedback will be greatly appreciated.

You will have to check the documentation for Norton on how to add trainers to the exclusion list or else turn it off temporarily.

Norton 2010 has a specific option that is causing your issues. I forget the name of it, but if you disable it, the probs will go away. I used Norton for over 10 years but finally dumped it when the 2010 version came out.

If NAV or NIS is fingering your trainers, disable AntiVirus, AntiSpyware, SONAR Protection, and Insight Protection. Click on settings ( Just under "Leave Feedback" ), and under the Computer Settings tab, you should find a section titled EXCEPTIONS, which has two options: Scan exclusions and Signature Exclusions. Click on the [+Configure] next to Scan exclusions and add the trainer ( or folder, if you keep all your trainers in one place as I do ) to both exception lists. Once you've done that, click apply, restart Insight, Antivirus, Antispyware, and SONAR and you're good to go.

NAV sucks...They generate false alarms more than going crazy on real viruses. You can try adding it to the either via Scan Exclusions (Add a folder to it and put all your trainers inside) or Signature Exclusions (With which you can add the signature NAV detects the trainer as)

Kaspersky is the best, it also checks files within archives, such as ISO files, RAR files, 7-Zip files, etc - While Norton does so only in zip files (I have not checked it, but I am 70% sure about it).
