When I download seaMonkey:
SeaMonkey Setup 2.46.exe for windows and try to install it I get the following message from my anti-versus program:

Certainly not the first time the Norton antivirus clients has had false-positives or screwed with something in SeaMonkey on Windows.

You know Symantec is doing such a good job when they have been singled out in Release notes for a number of years now.

Known Issues
Windows:
Norton/Symantec anti-virus scanners may report that some parts of SeaMonkey (e.g. the file freebl3.dll) are suspicious. If you downloaded SeaMonkey from one of the official download sites, this is a false alarm. You might experience problems with secure websites when this happens. To fix the issue, instruct your anti-virus software to ignore these files (and move them out of quarantine) and/or switch to another anti-virus software and reinstall SeaMonkey.

They have had false-positive issues with their aggressive heuristics going back to before Seamonkey was even a thing. I think they were already known for it in the Netscape 4 days.

You would think at some point they would fix their crap.

When I download SeaMonkey

From where?

You can verify the downloaded file's hash from here, http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/seamonkey/releases/2.46/ (the *SUMS file).
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; en-US; rv:1.9.1.19) Gecko/20110420 SeaMonkey/2.0.14 Pinball CopyURL+ FetchTextURL FlashGot NoScript

And yes I did turn on my anti-virus

Thank You all

I was fooling around with 2.48 and wanted to go back to 2.46. So I deleted 2.48 and when I tried to install 2.46 I got this error also. So I installed 2.40 with no problems. Than clicked check for updates and it upgraded to 2.46 with no problems. Makes no sense. Always good to keep older versions of software for this reason...
