Erm no idea, stopped using anti-viruses a few years back since I rely on my own knowledge and skills to protect myself (not saying everyone should do that). In general, I have heard reports of Norton false positives quite often, the Evolv software is safe, just download it from the official mirror. I doubt that it hasn't been downloaded by at least a hundred people by now as @retird suggested, but who knows.

And very important -- always use the International version of Escribe. The US version comes with certain limitation built-in due to the FDA regulations (not sure which ones exactly, about to research on that, but you do lose the 400W preheat on the DNA250C for sure). And if you live in the US, no one can oblige you to download the US version and not the International version, and it is not wrong doing so.. There is no differences in the software otherwise and you will not exhibit any issues if you live in the US and use the International Version (on the contrary)
