    I installed Norton Internet Security 2009, and during my full scan of the hard drive, the file \"search_206_windows_intelx86\" was falsely detected as a security risk. Could an administrator go to Symantec\'s false positive submission form to submit this file as a false positive? It was detected by the SONAR heuristics package.

    I am not attacking Norton because all heuristics packages in antivirus have the risk of false positives.

    EDIT:Never mind. Apparently, during the reboot that SONAR wanted to remove the false positive, it must have rescanned the file and found it to be no threat at all. Please ignore the stuff I wrote above.
