Re: Norton Antivirus 2010 false detects cygpath.exe, mkpasswd.exe, mkgroup.exe

So true.  I have ran sanity scans on totalvirus dot com and posted the
results on the norton forum.  I also updated to their most recent
version and still got it.  In addition I got a red flag on a different
product which I know is also safe so I have notified them about that.
In the meantime I have switched to an alternative product which I have
used in the past.
