I have Norton anti-virus professional edi. and it is up to date but when ever I unzip a keylogger or silk rope etc. it auto deletes the exicutable.
I have put all of these files in a folder. I was wondering if it is possible to make the folder 'invincible' from scans from norton?

Or should I just burn the servers and other exicutables to a disk?

It really depends on what antivirus you're using. For example, I'm running an older version of N.A. Corporate Ed. I open it up, go to configure, click the Real-Time File Protection subtree, and look for a button that says Exclude Files and Folders. You're probably using something else, but it shouldn't be to hard to figure out. Just dick around with the program for a little bit and you'll get it.
