Norton detects as virus...

Postby Iridium » Fri Nov 23, 2018 7:05 pm

Hello,

I think I've had this display (2.8") for over a year now, everything has been great! But now, out of the blue, Norton detects GOverlaySetup.exe as infected, the rest of the computer scans as clean. So I went to download the latest version from your website and the download was immediately blocked by Norton as containing malware/virii. I'm not saying that Norton is correct, but I'm a man of caution in this realm...so let's say 'once bitten, twice shy'.

I was able to download the portable version of GOverlay. I extracted the zip file, scanned with Norton, and Norton reports all files are clean. But Norton still will not let me download the the installer version of GOverlay.

Here are some screenshots:

Perhaps you, as the author, can contact Norton about this issue and get it resolved.

Sincerely,

Seems like its a false positive that norton detects with the installer (not goverlay itself).
I will see if there is anything i can do about it.

its a false positive, we are using innosetup for the installation and seems like those AV detect innosetup as a virus.
Here is the code that it runs in innosetup so everyone can see what it does

I have modified the installer using a diferent one, give it a try and see if this one is accepted
