I have this problem just today.
I recompiled my Excel project file after some update into Exe file.
When executing the exe file, Norton Security reported SONAR.Heuristic.170 was found and deleted the file.
I scanned my Excel project file but no virus was reported.
Anyone facing the similar issues?
A simple way to bypass this is only to exclude xlspadlock and the directory where the exe will be created from your antivirus.You should have a setting where you can setup the exclusion range for your realtime scanner.
You can setup a free testing certificate…If you want to deploy it professionally you need to get signed one OR if you are Non profit orginization you can setup your own which will cost you nothing.Depend how professional your image are and if you are a non profit organzation or small company.
