I can assure you that AIDA64 distribution packages are free of any kind of malware, incl. viruses, worms, spyware, trojans, adware. But in case you are afraid of the false alarm may be true, then please let Norton remove the mentioned file. AIDA64 will work without that file, except for the Disk Benchmark feature that will be unusable without the AIDA_DISKBENCH.DLL file.

Regards,

Fiery
