I just ran Norton and It labled the sopcast files as Trojan Horse, now is just a false alarm because Sopcast for some reason Norton labels Sopcast as a Virus or is really a Virus?

I'm going to delete Sop 2.0.1 and Download Sop 3.0.2 and than run the scan again, but has anyone else had this issue?

I used to have norton (2005 version) but in January I got free upgrade to 2008. Any way once I choose to do that It stopped working and it wont let me uninstall either. I had no choice but to Install alternative (McAfee). I am still trying to get rid off Norton from my sytem. I have sent message to symantec software with no reply.I now class Norton as a Virus :sick:not Anti-Virus as it should be.

Oh sorry I use SOP 2.0.4

I heard the old Sopcast has Trojan virus.

But new edition has more security. And its virus free.

Did you download the Norton Remover??

Heres the link

Try with this one, may be you will be able to remove it.

I just hate the Norton softwares. They just suck. Mcafee is best.

Norton sucks.

Go with Avast (http://www.avast.com). The best out there!

Did I mention it is fully free (with updates) :up:for home use?

If it hadnt been for Nasif Bhai's recommendation, I wouldnt have tried out Avast!

I have become a total fan of Avast since for the past 2 years. Lightweight, free updates, not as annoying as Kaspersky, very thorough... cleaned a trojan that went undetected by AVG on my friend's computer.
