Summary0000083: Symantec Antivirus quarantines cmdow.exe
DescriptionHi, BTS!
Even after configuring Symantec Antivirus Corporate Edition version to exclude cmdow.exe from detection and quarantine, it still quarantines the file and thus prevents slipstreaming the driverpacks.
Additional InformationI haven't tested other antivirus programs, such as Norton Antivirus, but I'm pretty sure they are likely to do the same. Symantec Antivirus calls cmdow.exe 'Hacktool.HideWindow', and although it may often be used by hackers, there are plenty of legitimate programs out there which use it to perform required functions, such as your driverpacks, nLite update packs, etc.

It's a false alarm, as explained on the forums.

cmdow.exe won't be used anymore in the next version though. So this annoying 'problem' will be solved anyway :) ;).
