    where you can find the False Positives from anti spyware on a MAC

    I'm told that Norton tends to quarantine the keygenerators as it mistakenly thinks it's a virus (false positive)

    Keygens are illegal, immoral and unethical implements of Theft that allow you to steal someone’s software without paying for it. The unscrupulous writers of these keygens feel that you get what you deserve when they load them with viruses, Trojans, keyloggers and other malware… If you dance, you have to pay the fiddler.
