Norton Internet Security (on Windows XP)is detecting most of the Cube and Yello applications as malware, and deleting them immediately - resulting in a "client error" when the application tries to run.

I've white-listed these in my NIS and they are now running ok. But it you are seeing a lot of returns terminating abnormally, this is probably the reason.

We are not seeing a lot of failures, but this is valuable information. Thank you for making the report.

I wonder what it is about these apps that makes Norton think this is malware? Perhaps something about how it detects keyboard activity (or inactivity)?
