Heur.AdvML.A false positives after new key / update
Ok, so my old Norton Security Deluxe expired and a week later I (upgraded/renewed) put in a new key for Norton Security Deluxe w/ Norton Utilities. It did it's thing and now I've got over 1,800 Heur.AdvML.A and Heur.AdvML.B and .C and Suspicious.Epi.4 and a few known to be untrustworthy files in torrents. Further info showed 12 Trojan.# out of 1,844 supposed High Risk files. How do I set the criteria to only flag the Trojans? What's worse is the nagging pop up to address the concerns that bogs down my machine. If I choose fix, it quarantines or deletes the files. This won't work b/c a lot of the files are on my other Win 7 partition and in the Windows folder. And your nuts if you think I'm going through 1,800+ one by one to exclude them all. I've changed the settings to Off for Heuristic detection and rerun the scan and it persists. So why were these files fine a few days ago and not today? And how do change the flagging criteria?
The great part is Virus Total cleared all the files I checked and Symantec approved of every single one of them? So what's wrong with this picture? Besides Symantec getting overzealous with their heuristic detection. Because I'm pretty pist. Ain't nobody got time for this!
I've gleaned that Symantec staff don't frequent these forums because why should they care; they've already got my money so any help is appreciated by the community.
Also, besides the above questions, is there a way downgrade the virus engine to a more preferable one?
When I have to uninstall Norton to switch AV, will it take all those "unresolved" files with it? Or lock them in some Symantec proprietary file/folder wasting space and leaving my other install unbootable?
