Heur.Adv.ML.B threat wipes out OE. Help
#1
For some reason Norton AV detected Heur.Adv.ML.B. When fixed OE disappeared. Using oe-restore an error message "Windows.old not found or Run-time error '53' file not found. Re-installing Run As XP will restart OE only to see a minute later that Norton AV detected Heur.Adv.ML.B and when fixed OE disappeared.

Norton gives me the choice to ignore Heur.Adv.ML.B, but that safe and is Heur.Adv.ML.B part of Run As OE?

Help!

Hello
It is normal and happens with many software, It is called False Positive alert (you can google it for more info)
That means that this is NOT true alert and you can safely add it to exceptions.

I've used Run As XP on windows 10 since 2016. Yesterday I could not open OE and received "Runtime Error message 53 file not found". So I ran your program again today and got the same Error 53 message.
I use Norton Security Suite.

Please Advise,

John

Norton started tagging msimn.exe as a Heuristic identified virus a couple days ago. It's not safe to add Heur.Adv.ML.B which is the virus signature they check for to an ignore list (there could be other files infected), but... you can restore msimn.exe from quarantine. Unfortunately, even though it shows a check box to add that to the 'ignore' list in the 'restore from quarantine' screen, it does not do it. You have to add it manually.

Already sent file to symantec for checking and excluding for false alert, file is CLEAN and false alerts are usual on some antivirus. Just ignore and add to exceptions.
