So, often, perfectly clean hacks get flagged. This includes boot managers and many other useful tools.

I'd suggest to kick Symantec off your system and install either Avast or Microsoft Security Essentials. Both are free and both are very good.

There are other good free AV packages, but I suggested these two, cause they don't annoy you with undefeatable splash screens and there's no nagging to get you to move to a paid version either.

Security Essentials did not flag Flightcrew, and I'm using it without ill effects, other than it telling me that all my epub files are a mess
