Google Translation has a problem with Dutch. Can you try English ??

Do you mean that Norton will not allow   you to download AdwCleaner by Xplode and save to your Desktop ??

This means that it's sure that adwcleaner will not harm my computer , what's the reason that NIS warns for WS.Reputation.1, when there is no danger !

And as I posted earlier, quite often you need to turn off your Antivirus Program so another program can run.

 

Temporarily Disable your Antivirus <<<= Try this as another answer ................ It usually works .  :wizardball:

Also let me provide you some reading material in regards to this detection

WS.Reputation.1 Summary

WS.Reputation.1 is a detection for files that have a low reputation score based on analyzing data from Symantecs community of users and therefore are likely to be security risks. Detections of this type are based on Symantecs reputation-based security technology. Because this detection is based on a reputation score, it does not represent a specific class of threat like adware or spyware, but instead applies to all threat categories.

The reputation-based system uses "the wisdom of crowds" (Symantecs tens of millions of end users) connected to cloud-based intelligence to compute a reputation score for an application, and in the process identify malicious software in an entirely new way beyond traditional signatures and behavior-based detection techniques.


WS.Reputation.1 Technical Details

...The system considers many aspects of a file, including file age, file download source, digital signature, and file prevalence. These attributes are combined using a proprietary algorithm to determine a files safety reputation. The system maintains a rating for all files rather than just malicious files. Each software file is given a GOOD, BAD or SUSPICIOUS rating. Symantecs reputation-based security engine continuously monitors all files and over time a files reputation may change.


Clarification on WS.Reputation.1 detection

There have been several recent posts about the WS.Reputation.1 detection. In order to clear things up, we thought it was important to explain this detection and provide more information about how you should deal with it...Now, like any security technology, there is a small chance that we have made a mistake on a file. We are constantly tuning the reputation system to avoid these problems, but they do occur on occasion. If you believe a file has been mistakenly detected by WS.Reputation.1, you can submit a dispute at https://submit.symantec.com/dispute/. This page is monitored 24 hours a day so that we can immediately begin to research and correct any issue.


What is WS.Reputation.1?

UPDATE FROM SYMANTEC

Since this has become a lengthy thread, we've updated this first post to provide useful information to new forum members. In the event that a file has been wrongly identified as WS.Reputation.1, please submit it here for review. For a workaround on this issue, please follow the directions in this post. I would also recommend that you review this post for information on why some of your files may be identified as WS.Reputation.1.


Reputation rating services use a system of volunteer testers that continually patrol the Internet to browse sites, and download files. All the results are documented and supplemented with feedback from users, Web site owners, and analysis from their own employees. Norton uses millions of it's own product users to compute a reputation score for an application in an effort to identify malicious software. While reputation tools are useful, they are not foolproof and sometimes may provide misleading or inaccurate information.
