A file got flagged as a trojan from SEP 12.1.3. I want this file restored. It restores the file but a split second later if flagged it as a trojan again. Now the option to restore isn't available. Any way to get this file recovered?

Qextract is for SEP 11.0. This link will take you to the SEPQuarantineTool that works with SEP 12.1.

If you're certain this is a false-positive detection, then you should create an exception for this file before restoring it. Or it will only be re-detected.

In fact my posting stated both tools for v11 and v12. Also catch the "Best Practice when Symantec Endpoint Protection is Detecting a File that is Believed to be Safe" http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=TECH98360
