WARNING to Norton AV SONAR users

Post by brian » Thu Jul 21, 2011 11:50 am

WARNING: if you use Norton AV and were duped into the 'free trial' of SONAR check this out and search the web.
You will find the morons at Norton are wreaking havoc on many software vendors.
Essentially the program wipes out software it doesn't know about.
SO how does it know about software?
Well you PAY them to let them know you exist.
Great business model!
Please note we WILL NOT support any issues you may have with SONAR.
Disable it, delete it, shove it up Norton's ....well you get the idea..send the 'Big Brother' software back to them morons at Norton and support other non-predatory anti-virus software vendors.

To turn Sonar off - two options

Click the Norton icon to get to the control panel, and set the SONAR button to Off ( red )

Or

When the message comes up, click Options, and A ) restore, and B ) leave the 'ignore in future scans' button checked, which it is by default, and select 'Permanently' from the list box there.

April 2012: When updating you may get a message from Norton Sonar.
You need to tell Sonar to ignore their incorrect false/positive on our programs in order to use our programs.
mgraphic08.exe does not have a bug or virus.
