    Win 8.1, NIS 2014
    I'm using the KMS service which seems to run KMSSERVER.EXE on boot. The problem is that NIS intercepts the process and automatically quarantines it. I've tried everything to exclude the file from Sonar (the culprid) but it can't be done.
    Please advise an alternative or a solution.

    I would uninstall NIS entirely. Sometimes some file being incorrectly set up can cause this AV to go mad; a reinstall will most likely fix everything.

    Edit: On second thought, you had better ditch Norton altogether. Maybe it just doesn't play nice with software it doesn't know.

    Norton used to stand for quality products, in the old days. It went downhill from Symantec day #1. :(

    Norton itself is a virus(in my opinion) because a)it bogs you(your system) down & b)it blocks many trusted softwares. At first people think it is wonderful, because it is blocking more things than any other software but later they come to know(in a hard way) that it is a piece of s**t, when it blocks their good old & trusted software as well. Stay away from the likes of Norton & AVG. There are many small, lightweight & free Anti-Virus softwares with lot less 'False Positives' rate.

    I second that. Antivirus pecking order for Dummies, IMHO:

    M$ AVs > Common Sense > Mr T > Any retired special agent with infinite ammo > Condom coated with tabasco sauce and covered with another condom > Other AVs > Never using a computer > Norton.

    (Okay, hyperbole, but only slightly. NIS blows.)

    Something like this should work better than Norton
