Not what you are looking for? Ask the experts!
First off, I apologize if this particular subject has been discussed before. However, I did search for "SONAR.heuristic.170" and the search did not yield anything on this. Anyway, here is my issue. Norton detected "SONAR.heuristic.170 " and I did some research and wasn't able to find out exactly what this was but the security rating was HIGH so I had this quarantined as recommended. I did look to see what file was infected/affected (winword.exe) but didn't think anything of it. When I tried to fire up MS Word I was notified that this programs shortcut was useless and you're out of luck, as if Word was completely deleted from my MS Office Suite. I restored SONAR.heuristic.170 from quarantine and Word loaded fine and now I can continue working on that novel.
Exactly what is "SONAR.heuristic.170 " and why does it render MS Word useless when removed?
Should I remove "SONAR.heuristic.170 " and find another way to access MS Word?
I attached a screen shot of the Norton notification.
Thank you folks in advance.
