    Icon8 Norton reports FR as virus

    So, here I am, going to Free Realms, starting the game, when oh my gosh, a pop up comes out saying Norton detected a virus!

    I click the window, and for my surprise it says it is Free Realms (of course, norton terminated the program, so it didnt even start). Here's a picture:

    How did you fix it? Every time I start the game, norton keeps blocking it. I dont wanna disable it or anything, did you? If yes, did anything *weird* (by that, i mean annoying virus pop ups choking your computer) happen?

    Internet Worm Protection ~ This guide shows you how to make Norton stop recognizing a .exe file as a bad thing (Which yours seems to be doing).

    Sorry if this doesn't help you :<

    This has become an issue that has been discussed about on the official forum.

    http://forums.station.sony.com/freer...topic_id=19379

    In case you are unable to access the forums here is what Iceberg posted.
    Quote from Iceberg:
    We're seeing many reports that Norton Antivirus has decided it didn't like Free Realms any more and is treating it like a virus. We're investigating now. For the time being, please make sure your virus definitions are up to date so we can ascertain if that is the issue, or if their current definitions are what's causing this.
    You can definitely feel secure that this is a false positive response, and safely restore the .exe from the quaratine area and allow the program.
    If this happens to you, please post your version of Norton, and whether or not updating your definitions helped.
    Thanks!!
    Iceberg

    Update: A little more research shows you are likely receiving the error "freerealms.exe:crc (WS.Reputation.1)". If so, did Norton quarantine the Free Realms executable all by itself, or had you chosen to scan the file manually with a right-click?
    :end of quote


    There are several people that are having this issue so hopefully they will get it all straightened out soon.
