Running file insight on my production computer results in the screenshot below. First suggestion is to run Rkill to check for malware processes, registry entries for malware and have it terminate them. Follow-up with a standard scan with Malwarebytes and see what if anything it detects.
Thanks for reporting in Norton Community Forums. Can you please submit the files for further analysis? Once files submitted please share the submission tracking number for follow up.
Report a Suspected Erroneous Detection (False Positive) to Symantec
I uninstalled Norton Security, installed Malwarebytes and ran a scan. It removed a few things and then reinstalled Norton. No more warnings now.
