Norton Antivirus removes AnalogX proxy

robwise asked
Last Modified: 2012-06-27
A couple of months ago I installed the programme AnalogX proxy on my PC to facilitate internet sharing with another PC.  The two are connected with crossover cable.  Everything has worked OK until yesterday when Norton Antivirus 2006 identified the AnalogX proxy as a virus called Hacktool.Proxy and removed it.

Norton Antivirus has been installed since before installing the AnalogX proxy so I do not understand why suddenly it decides that it is a virus.

I can try reinstalling AnalogX proxy but it seems a bit pointless if Norton Antivirus is going to identify it as a virus.  How do I stop Norton Antivirus from deleting the program?

NB.  Operating syestem is Windows XP
