several times a year I have problem with false positive antivirus 
detection in Symatec's AV and I have to manually submit false positive 
report. I'm using portable version.
To avoid this I've found two solutions

1] For virus scanning I can use Virustotal [1] service. It's a free 
service which scan files with several antivirus solutions - 56 today. 
For example yesterday I've found two false positives - in TrendMicro and 
in Symantec and reported them. Virustotal allow mass scannig of files 
and for this I tested Phrozen VirusTotal Uploader [2] where you can scan 
lots of files.

2] Symatec offers whitelisting program for software vendors [3]. I could 
fill the form, but I've not TDF e-mail address (• For identity 
verification, a corporate email address is mandatory. Requests from free 
email domains will be denied.) . Please could someone with TDF e-mail 
adress fill this form? Ideally after every release (• White-Listing is 
version specific. Future software versions must be submitted ongoing for 

Of course more AV vendors offers whitelisting.
