Anti Virus message on laptop screen

LSS won't run? Have you checked your Anti Virus?

From time to time certain anti virus packages suddenly decide that a file which has been sitting on your computer for ages is suddenly a malicious piece of software and without warning just removes it. No fear, what usually happens is that the file is actually "Quarantined" i.e. moved to a 'safe' folder from where it can be retrieved.
Below is a list of false positives that we have been made aware of
Symantec Endpoint Protection / Norton Antivirus
