Compilers are often classified as virus. Make an exception rule

Would it be possible to build the compiler.exe from source within a virus free environment ? The specific note from Norton identify a specific threat !

We will check it ourselves again, but we use a special virtual machine that is behind few firewalls and should not be infected. But we will check again
