    You are literally the first to ever mention a virus being in the files. I'm 99,99999% sure there's no virus in EB with the download. If it's not a false alarm you definetly got it from somewhere alse since you are the first to report it ever. I assume it's a false alarm though

    I'll unquarantine but has the uploader of the installer scanned the files with Antivirus? You wouldnt happen to have the .exe for v2.1 to double check? It also said hundreds of users within the norton community have used this file?

    Dear gods, people still suffer under Norton's atrocious bloatware?
    It began on seven hills - an EB 1.1 Romani AAR with historical house-rules (now ceased)
    Heirs to Lysimachos - an EB 1.1 Epeiros-as-Pergamon AAR with semi-historical houserules (now ceased)

    Evidently.

    I personally consider it a virus...and treat it accordingly.

    The above, ESET is about the only non-bloatware AV out there. Norton, McAffee, Kaspersky - wouldn't touch any of them.

    WS Reputation is a silly annoying part of norton that hasn't actually ever helped me once.
    What it does is delete/quarantine anything (I am using the word anything liberally) it doesn't recognize due to a lack of norton users downloading the file. This doesn't mean it is a bad file, just unrecognized.
