    I've installed the HTML-Kit Tools to my USB drive using the appropriate menu option. However, when I try to run the HKTools.exe on my work computer it is blocked by Norton Antivirus. I found some posts in other forums on how this is a false positive, however, I do not have Admin rights to change the Norton settings to allow the program to run.

    Can the program be compiled using a different name or something so I can run it on Norton protected PC's? What is the work-around for this if I don't have admin rights to Norton to allow it to run?

    Thanks

      This is not a HTML-Kit specific issue so there's not a whole lot that
      can be done on this end. I'm afraid you'll have to ask the admin to
      configure that PC to allow this.
