Oh good grief... after downloading the game, I discovered that my Norton software first quarantined, and then dumped the .exe file, so I couldn't install. Something called WS.Reputation.1 was the problem. I skimmed through AlchemyMindworks
explanation from 2011 & it seems that Norton views lesser-used installers as threats, without a distinction between a virus vs. low-use as being the cause. The suggestion seemed to be that it likely is not problematic, if I read it correctly.
I should've just bought the boxed version.
I... well, we all
know Shadow Tor, so there's no trust issue about the people behind the game. They're our friends... have been for quite some time. It's just that see
ing a word like "threat" is jitter-causing. Hopefully my concern is greater than this perceived problem, and it can be sorted out.
