We had the same problem with our Norton installs having issues with our
LC-built apps, even when installing an update to the same app.  We never

Switching AV was our solution, but I get that you can't tell your customers
to do that.

On the first day, God created the heavens and the Earth
On the second day, God created the oceans.
On the third day, God put the animals on hold for a few hours,
   and did a little diving.
And God said, "This is good."
