SONAR is deleting programs
We have turned off SONAR since it deletes programs that we wrote and which have been working for many years.
This is a BIG PROBLEM!!!
We develop and provide software to companies all over the world. SONAR deleting programs wihtout having any chance to stop it is not reasonable behavior. Such is the default. Several programs were deleted on our and customer machines wihtout anyone understanding what was happening.
While this technology might be worthwhile, it is not made clear upon installation of Internet Security 2010 that such is going to happen. 2009 does not have this function available.
At this point we do not know that we can continue using NORTON products. It would appear that the SONAR solution is to delete all programs and leave a PC that has nothing running on it.
Upon investigation of what SONAR was doing, it checked against a database that did not have record of our software. Writing a new program will cause SONAR to delete it upon first execution.
To repeat, we are very unhappy.
