azaze1 Posted May 24, 2006 Share Posted May 24, 2006 Anyone using Symantec or Norton antivirus is probably aware that as of mid May, the AVDEFs now consider the cmdow.exe program a Hacking tool, and automatically quarantine the cmdow.exe file.This poses a problem in that it always removes it from my CD/DVD source which was easily fixed by making a simple file/folder exclusion within the Symantec AntiVirus Client program. However, during an actual OS installation... once Symantec AntiVirus is installed, any future programs that call cmdow.exe to hide the cmd window for silent installation will not work as intended because SAV does its job in quarantining the cmdow program.Is there any way to automate via a cfg file or a registry key, the exclusion of a file (in this case C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\cmdow.exe) immediately after SAV is installed so that future installs which use cmdow wont pop up with a virus detection from SAV?
