Sorry, but another time, i don't know where to write that.

 

Well, i'm a fan of the game "Captain Claw", and i discovered that someone made a new map editor, called WapWorld (while the old one was WapMap), however, When Norton Antivirus scans it, it tells that WapWorld has a virus. I saw it working on another computer, and it's an useful tool for the game i'm talking about.

I'd like to know if is possible to use that program to make maps without that the virus works on my computer while the program is executing.

Thanks for help (and for the maybe needed redirect of the post)

The detection could be a false positive.

Get a second opinion. Go to one of the following online services that analyzes suspicious files:--In the "File to Scan" (Upload or Submit) box, browse to the location of the file(s) in question and submit (upload) it for scanning/analysis. If you get a message saying "File has already been analyzed", click Reanalyze or Scan again.

ehm, would be possible if Norton Antivirus doesn't eliminate the file WHILE it is downloading...

You could download the file from another computer with a different anti-virus and then submit it.

BTW, Symantec allows you to Submit Virus Samples so they can investigate.
