Well Norton has always been a twitchy... but this is a beta and not all of the code is going to work well with all antivirus programs.

Ditch Norton/Symantec. Seriously, their anti-virus software is twitchy, bloated, and false-positive crazy.

There are some good alternatives out there. I'd recommend ESET's NOD32.

But don't just take my word for it. Read serious, 3rd party test reports from http://www.virusbtn.com/vb100/index. No anti-virus product is perfect, but some come much closer than Symantec ever can.
