it checks what you download or the softwhare on the computer and the amount of users that use the softwhare. it uses that to say something is a virus or not. i have save fraps when i download it otherwhise norton says its a virus and wont open it.

Exception list = You can specify certain files not to be detected by the scanner.

I am not sure...you might need to configure it in the Internet Explorer, but I might confuse it with a similiar warning.

Yes, even if you don't use the IE, the setting might lies there.

It's the original Microsoft FL.exe file? Did you okay one version, activate a mod that uses a different version, and then try playing the mod to see this? (it thinks the version has changed each time, so asks again?).

chips is right i am using a mod . i am working on my own mod for vanilla freelancer but heres the catch i have been working on this mod since i build this computer withe the same files just adding more encounters. it has to be something new with windows 7 and windows update because i have been playing with this for a year. let me do another fresh install and see.

Better solution: find an AV that isn't Norton. Anything, Anything, is better than Norton. If you're stuck deciding whether you should munch on broken glass, infect your computer with Trojans and viruses, or Install Norton - pick the Trojans. They'll cause far fewer problems than the other two options.

Dude...norton is a piece of #$%% (There's no nice way to say it)!

It uses more CPU time and memory than most and doesn't even offer good protection. Not to mention how relatively expensive it is.

Try ClamAV, Avast!, AVG, anything else.

Or just use linux

Edit:

From my own experience norton messes a lot of windows updates up, especially service packs distributed over windows update. Back in vista, norton made changes that often required Vista SP1 to be installed on a fresh copy of vista.

That's norton for you. I've used the no cd patch for years and i'd throw a fit if my av started doing that. That's grounds for deletion in my book. Plenty of better, cheaper, free av's out there. Cleanse your pc now, you know you want to.
