Hi Norton doesn't want me to open games.

Hi Norton doesn't want me to open games.

Post IP: rejestrowane!

Hello i'm Luka. Yesterday I found this web site and I was thrilled by the idea to play all the AMIGA games from my childhood without having to go through all the trouble with WINUAE, kick start ROMS etc.

Unfortunately, as soon as I download any game from this web site, NORTON anti virus finds a serious threat in the files and automatically deletes the file/game.
Some times it says medium risk but some times high risk viruses or malaware.... wtf??
What can I do?

Problem with:
v2.6?
v2.5?

1. Send exe files to Norton Lab - this is false-positive alarm
2. Exclude directory with exes

Hi I resolved the problem by restoring the exe files from the NORTON quarantine.
Hmm the computer does seem to be slower after I did so.
But ok, I can always restore my computer to 1 week ago.
However, it would be great if the files would be clean = no false positive alarms and having to deal with your anti-virus.
Thank you for your help.
