I am trying to un-install a coffeecup program thru programs and feature and Sonar picked up a problem. I trust programs from coffeecup.com. I am un-installing a program to install a new version of the same program from coffeecup.com.
Go into "Programs and Features". Soon I clicked to un-install Direct FTP. Click continue and then a little window popped up bottom right of screen saying a program was acting suspicious and was removed. Was in /temp/. Did it 2 times and had 2 different numbers. _uninstall4700 and different number after that.
Coffeecup.com is a trusted and safe company. What should I do to stop this from going on. Send a clipboard copy or what it doing or restore or turn off to finish un-install the program. coffeecup.com been around since 1996 by the way.
HAVE A GREAT DAY.
Solved! Go to Solution.

The uninstaller may be creating files in the /temp/ folder with different numbers during the uninstallation process and by some means SONAR detects that file as malicious. Since the file name would be different each time, restoring from quarantine won't be much help. It would be good if you can disconnect from the Internet, then turn off AutoProtect & SONAR temporarily (for 15mins or so) and then perform the uninstall. You can turn on AutoProtect & SONAR once you complete the uninstall process, then reconnect back to the Internet.
It would be good, if you can provide more information like the version and name of coffeecup program you are trying to install, threat detection information from the Security History for the SONAR etc. This would help us to verify the problem from our end as well.

HI........ I un-installed the old Direct FTP program from coffeecup.com and then installed the new Direct FTP program from coffeecup.com. I trust coffeecup.com 100%. Just wondering why Sonar was picking it up when I was trying to un-install the old Direct FTP early this week. Wierd!
Anyway . . . . Before coming here. I tried 3 times to un-install Direct FTP from PROGRAMS and FEATURES with no luck. The first time it said this file ........ /temp/_uninstall4700 from Norton Sonar ..... Then tried a second time and Norton Sonar said _uninstall5368 abd then tried one more time to un-install 5308.
Then tried when you said. To disconnect from the net . . . . . Then turn off antivirus and then un-install again. That time it worked.
Here is a copy from the first one to give you Norton the idea. I think it false positive.
