During basic installation cygpath, mkpasswd, and mkgroup were all
detected by SONAR (part of NAV 2010) that it the files emitted
suspicious activiry and would be removed. The files have not been
removed (yet) but I will be alerting Norton to this. This does block
the program though and prevents their use to complete the install.
Thought to let you guys know about it. This may also affect NAV 2009
or similiar applications (Norton Internet Security, Norton 360).
If SONAR protection is off during the install it is ok at least for that.
