Customizing Norton AntiVirus for Macintosh About Prevention Preferences

Select the custom options that you want. Your choices are:

Add Code Resource

A program tries to add code instructions to another file. This is the most common way that viruses infect files.

Add Startup Resource

A program tries to add startup resource code to any file in the System folder. This is a common way viruses infect files.

Change Code Resource

A program tries to change a file’s existing instructions. Programs rarely modify themselves. If this activity is detected, it can be an indication of a virus.

Change Startup Resource

A program tries to change code resources in a startup document. If this activity is detected, it may indicate a virus.

Add/Modify Startup Doc (default Standard option)

A program attempts to create a new startup document. Although this activity often happens legitimately (during the installation of new software, for example), it could indicate the presence of a virus.

Move Startup Document

A program tries to move a startup document into or out of the System folder. Although this activity often happens legitimately (when you move startup documents using the Finder, for example), it could indicate the presence of a virus.

Create/Modify Application (default Standard option)

A program tries to create or modify a program file. Although this activity often happens legitimately (when you copy files using the Finder, for example), it could indicate the presence of a virus.

Bypass Resource Manager

A program attempts to modify a resource file without going through the Macintosh Resource Manager. Modifications to a resource file are common; however, they normally take place using the Resource Manager. Although this activity often happens legitimately (when you use a backup program, for example), it could indicate the presence of a virus.
