Hi,

Norton has a option in the menu, to exclude files form scanning or deleting etc. Check your menu for it and add the file you want in it.

calum424,
Try the EXE File Association Fix at the link below. If your shortcuts aren't working also try the LNK (Shortcut) File Association Fix. Instructions are on the page.
