NIS 2010 ran a full system scan today and quarantined a file sub2divx.exe as a virus Infostealer.
It is a small free program for adding subtitles to divx files and I have used it for a couple of years.
This is the first that Norton flagged it.
Therefore I suspect it is a false positive, but would like to be sure before restoring it.
Is there a way for Symantec to check it?
The program can be downloaded from this page and does not require installation.
Thank you, Alex.

You missed the sticky note which is right on the top of the forums. It tells you how to address fp's.

Just to update in case anyone is interested.
I got a reply from Symantec about this.
We are writing in relation to your submission through Symantec's on-line Security Risk / False Positive Dispute Submission form for your sub2divx being detected by Symantec Software. In light of further investigation and analysis Symantec is happy to remove this detection from within its products.
The updated detection will be distributed in the next set of virus definitions, available daily, or weekly via LiveUpdate, depending on Symantec product version, or daily from our website at
