Generic

Trojan.Gen.2 means a generic detection, meaning Norton thinks it might have something in common with a certain set of trojans. It's a common false positive issue with Norton. You can contact them and let them know of their error. You can either whitelist it or wait for them to fix it after that point. There's nothing wrong with the file and there's nothing we can do to fix Norton's error.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
