False positive. Setup an Exception in your AV for the Steam folder

VirusTotal report here: https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/60796d0b24660031f3b60693ef2291d34db2413838c2235d84c76491567cfd9b/analysis/

It's totally safe.

In all honesty Norton for as long as I remember is known to give away false alerts. For many years it was rated one of the worst virus killers on the market then for some time it was on rank1 but that's also many years ago. You may want to consider an alternative.

I just remember this when I used it myself. It reported false things like in your case while ignoring real treats and so it got kicked out. It's still good but over sensitive with a to high error quote.

That's a good idea imo. The antivirus program I use is Vipre. You can get a free 30 day trial with it. When the free trial ends, you won't get anymore definition updates, but you will still be able to use it.

Vipre is one of the worst AVs on the market. http://chart.av-comparatives.org/chart1.php

At least use a good free AV (that won't ever expire and stop giving you updates, without updates an AV is useless), like Avast, Avira, or BitDefender Free.

Interesting. How about Kaspersky?

Kaspersky is fantastic, but there is no free version available.

Bitdefender is one of the best and has a free trail. try it out. if you enjoy it buy a key at g 2a for only 1-2€ each year
