Norton 360 thinks that some of the files required for my LoL Replay to work are viruses.

THe LoL Replay says I should add the file path for the program into my antivirus to allow it as an exception.

Norton 360 doesn't allow file path entries, it wants you to except specific files. However, when I look up the files to except them, it gives me almost NO details on which file is which, so I basically have no way of knowing if I'm excepting an actual virus or the file I need for LoL Replay to work...

Risk Details tells me nothing.

This question came from our site for passionate videogamers on all platforms.

I wouldn't use Norton in the first place^^ but I think the question isn't offtopic, since most likely people who play LoL will have expierence with this. – Jacimovski Aug 12 '12 at 13:35
@Jacimovski i understand that much of teh community hates norton but I like it, its always done right by me, and since I've bought it, im stickin with it. – Ender Aug 12 '12 at 14:00
To use Norton, you must pay a yearly subscription renewal fee. I'm not sure that it's worthwhile for you to continue to pay this fee. You can switch to Windows Defender at no charge — you paid for it when you bought your computer, and there are no subscription renewal costs. – unforgettableid Jun 22 '15 at 0:16

Simple fix: Don't use norton. Their database of viruses is full of false-positives.

Desired fix for you: Select replay.* (meaning select all the items with the name replay in front) and add them as exceptions

Also, clicking risk details will give you more information

@Ender I've already told you. Select replay.* (meaning select all the items with the name replay in front) and add them as exceptions – GtoXic Aug 12 '12 at 14:16

+1 for "Don't use Norton". I used to have a LOT of problems with my antivirus - then I switched (to AVG). Haven't had a problem since... – Nate Koppenhaver Aug 12 '12 at 18:25
I recommend switching to MSE. – kinokijuf Aug 12 '12 at 18:49

I have found the solution!

  • Disable Norton 360 Auto-Protect
  • Uninstall the LoL Replay Program
  • Reinstall the LoL Replay Program
  • Go into the Lol Replay Installation Directory and find the file before Norton 360 grabs it and changes its name to something ambiguous, right click it, and except it from the antivirus manually that way.
  • Re-enable Auto Protect.
