Re: all av have the false / bugs from time to time and I did not
said by cameronsfx:Thanks, I will, because I find ignorant bigots just as offensive as corporate thieves and conmen. Symantec's past is riddled with widely documented incompetence and, more pointedly, dismissive denials and unreasonably delayed responses. Mistakes, both small and large happen, and any and all can argue until they're blue in the face about why they shouldn't, but it's how one deals with those mistakes that shows their true measure, and that's why ALWIL still have my business despite this recent incident. So while it wouldn't suprise me if that product you're lauding still flags ZERO-BYTE files (with blacklisted filenames) as viruses (or if AVG still forced users to quit the real-time scanner to access falsely flagged files,) it doesn't suprise me that ALWIL had a fix in place for their screwup as quickly as they did.
Say what you want, us Norton users don't have total incompetence like that.
