so i decided to run a NPA scan because i was bored, when the results came in many lulz were had.
check the screenshot result.
so, norton power eraser thinks that the installer for Norton Internet Security 2012 is a bad file and wants to remove it.

That's pretty funny. If you right-click and choose Properties on the installer executable, does it show up as digitally signed? NPE is pretty aggressive in detecting untrusted executables sitting around on one's desktop.
I'd love to see the ETL logs if you feel like providing them.

my bad, the file is an old setup executable of the 2011 version that i had stored on my external hdd but its still funny to see that NPE says it's a bad file. it's digitally signed as the screenshot shows.
where would one find the ETL logs?

To check the digital signature you need to click that line once to highlight it and then click the detail button.
The next screen will tell you if the signature is OK or not.
Odd, I have the same file and it shows the same date but a different time.
I haven't tried running power eraser though.

You would find the logs in the following location.
XP: C:\Documents and Settings\<USERNAME>\Local Settings\Application Data\NPE
Please send us the NPETraceSession.etl (and also the NPETraceSessionBoot.etl, if such a file exists)
