    Default ASCOM Issue

    I downloaded the ASCOM 6.3 platform just now. Norton deletes the downloaded file after scanning it and concluding there's a virus embedded in it (WS.Reputation.1). I can recover the file, but is there really a problem? Has anyone else encountered this?

    There is a discussion about this on the ASCOM-Talk Yahoo group.

    Thanks, Bob, for this tip. I looked there and saw that the general consensus was to disregard Norton's assessment. I installed version 6.3, and everything seems to be working okay.

    In the past, when Norton had a false positive, I'd report it and they would investigate and add it to the exception list.
    If you wish to do so, the link is here:
