I've been having this problem ever since I downloaded America's Army.

Norton AntiVirus has been finding GameSpy as a threat, and therefore PunkBuster won't let me play on protected servers.

A-Squared has been giving me a similar problem. A program that my dad used to use has been found as a threat, but he doesnt wana get rid of it because he isn't sure of when he's gonna use it next. And hltv.exe for CounterStrike 1.6 has been found as a threat.

I don't know why these scanners are finding good programs as threats, but I do know that it is highly annoying. If anybody knows anything, please do say so. Thanks for any help you give.

Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.

So... nobody knows why NIS is finding GameSpy as a threat? Thanks for looking anyway.
