Hey I currently have norton 360 v4 and it is detecting and deleting a false positive but I do not know how to add an exception to norton?
open Norton 360, click on Settings, there AntiVirus Settings, and there you will be able to find the exclusion settings.
I would submit that file to Symantec to analyze it further. If it is really a false positive, they can then adjust their definitions. Please follow these steps.
