Yesterday, within the release of the latest version of SEO PowerSuite, some of you may have got a message from Norton or other anti-viruses, stating that the software contains suspicious items and may be dangerous for your computer. We want to assure you that this is an absolutely false alarm which may appear because we have made great changes in the latest software version and the new SEO PowerSuite file greatly differs from the previous one.
In order to avoid this issue we recommend you to add our software(linkassistant.exe, ranktracker.exe, seospyglass.exe and websiteauditor.exe) and Java to the list of your anti-virus exceptions.
P.S. We have already contacted Norton regarding this case and according to their forecasts they will fix the issue ASAP.

False positive detections are common in the antivirus industry. They occur when a benign program is wrongfully flagged as malicious due to an overly broad detection signature or algorithm used in an antivirus product.

The problem is that, antivirus software disable the functionality by removing the part it's detected.\

How do I get it back and make the software running smoothly?
