You get the warm fuzzy feeling you helped several dozen of your fellow players patch, and get back into the game. :)
*awards warm & fuzzy feelings*
Last month Norton disabled Internet Explorer with a bad patch, now this. Maybe time to hit cancel button on Norton.

The same thing happened when they were sending out beta invites for Cataclysm. Norton wouldn't let me install the beta, kept blocking it saying it was a virus. Had to turn off Norton to install that one too and had zero issues once it was installed.
In this situation, all of the reports have come back as false positives. I am recommending the steps mentioned earlier to get around the false positive.
Please keep checking for updates from Norton as well. The latest virus definitions from Norton will most likely alleviate this issue too.

Open Norton. Click 'Settings' - Scroll down to 'SONAR PROTECTION' - Click 'OFF' - Click 'APPLY' - Set the duration for 15 minutes - Run WoW.
Everything should be working fine, if not, leave a comment and I'll be glad to help!
i freaking love you man thank you so much!! LETS GAME!!
Please help me......
Blizzard now wants everyone to start dropping functions of their antivirus programs in order to use their software.
That's real secure.
Does Blizzard not have a room full of computers with different setups, ONE OF WHICH has Norton Antivirus on it, and test their stuff out BEFORE releasing it to the public? Apparently not.
And I trust these people with my credit card # ???
NOT ANYMORE !
