I use angry ip scanner to as a network tool to quickly lookup IP addresses etc. on the network.  About a month or so ago, symantec added Angry UP Scanner to the threat list and it is now being quarantined everytime I try to run it.  Does anyone know how to make symantec stop doing this?

    For what it's worth, the guy that has created Angry IP Scanner has made attempts to get it removed from Symantec's site, as per the suggestions of the Symantec employee on that message board.  We'll see if they remove it, though (doubtful any time soon, apparently).
