    I tried the new 4905 Service Tool by @James Michael L. Acierto, and it got zapped on my system as I expected it would, there’s no point in me try to get it to work because all my PC’s are wrapped up as tight as a duck’s ass...:hu

    This is the only sure way to run the Exe File... ;)

    Most likely true and reason why the explanations for the malware alerts are so generic. For me, Norton Security flagged both the EXE and the DLL found in the Service Tool zip file. Not every day I see a DLL flagged, but, why not as it is just a library of code used by the EXE to do its job. Not sure why the coder didn't compile the DLL code into the EXE to keep a one-file "elegant" solution.

    Not necessarily true. You can temporarily disable your security application entirely or you can set it up to ignore the file(s) and therefore not delete them or impede their operation. Norton allows for both of these "solutions" which can be initiated from the pop up alert window generated by Norton when it finds something real or potentially bad.

    However, this will leave you open to infestation, so, either run the file(s) in a sandbox or, better yet, a virtual machine to test. Like @PeterBJ said, another choice is if you have a standalone computer that is neither connected to the internet nor networked with your other computers and is void of any and all personal data.

    Ha ha, very funny @stratman, if I altered the Norton setting on the computer, my son would have me on a rack and flogged for interfering with any of the settings, I just couldn’t go there, :bow he’s the Malware BOSS... :smack

    Not trying to be funny, just letting you and others know the possibilities.

    You should go with your son's recommendation.

    I have tried running the service tools v4720 and v4905 on my experimental old Windows XP computer. AVG Free immediately quarantined the exe files and prevented running the service tools. Some time ago I was able to run the version 4720, but it seems AVG has been updated since then.

    I am also interested to see just how effective one or both services tools work, I’ll try and reunite an old XP Motherboard, Ram and a hard drive together and try running them from there with a knackered iP7250...
