Hi

I have encountered a problem when I come to open a new project in Visual Studio.NET. A Norton AntiVirus message is displayed with the following notification:

__________________________________________________________________________
Malicious Script Detected
Your computer is halted and needs to do something about this script.
Object: FileSystem Object
Activity: GetSpecialFolder
File: devenv.exe
__________________________________________________________________________

What is the cause of this error? Can I fix this error? Do i need to uninstall and reinstall my software?

Thanks in advance for your help.
