I checked, and sure enough, Norton promptly removed the download, reporting
a WS.REPUTATION.1 virus possibility, and that it was being submitted.  I
overrode it, and did a binary comparison with the one I downloaded a couple
of months ago.  Same file.  When I scan the executable, it gives me a
general message about there being several indications that it is
untrustworthy, but that it has actually done nothing.  I am guessing it is a
false alarm, mostly because there are so few Norton users who have the
program.   Stay tuned.

Interesting. Norton Security Suite on WinXP and on another Windows 7
computer has no complaints. I just checked and it says Norton updated itself
8 minutes ago so the definitions are current.

What kind of virus were you warned about?
