    @drjar: i have just installed this (my antivirus is symantec endpoint corporate license which is nothing but another variant of norton), and it did successfully without any warning. your computer may have an infection that infected the file during/after downloading. please check your computer by malwarebytes or similar program.

    gotta try this!!!

    Norton can be a bit ??????
    But giving it the benefit of the doubt, did you post your problem on the GOTD site ?

    One thing in the description (perhaps not mentioned on this page ?) spanning multiple discs caught my attention. I wonder if it could split an image that was created by Seagate Discwizard, across multiple DVDs ?
    And most importantly could it join them together again, and pass the very demanding Verify process ?
    (PS Does Nero Express Ver 8 have that splitting ability ?)
    (PPS If enough programs don’t work on Win 8, perhaps Win 8 will go away)

    Tried to install from GOTD on new Win7 pro. Norton removed setup.exe with following heuristic error:

    Discovered: January 20, 2011 Updated: October 9, 2012 5:08:10 AM Also Known As: Bloodhound.Sonar.9 [Symantec] Type: Trojan, Virus Infection Length: Varies Systems Affected: Windows 98, Windows 95, Windows XP, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7, Windows Me, Windows Vista, Windows NT, Windows Server 2003, Windows 2000

    Program did not install. I hope nothing else did!

    We tend to frown on reviews of programs that we have to pay for.
    I will make an exception today (I am not frowning) as it is free for the next 21 hours –
