Norton Internet Security reported several times the autodock_mgl_1.055_windows_intelx86 file as a high security risiko and removed it. Any idea how to avoid this in the future otherwise than dropping the all project ?

Try to add all BOINC directories to NIS ignore list.

There is a way I could probably get the software on a whitelist for several AV. Given this is still alpha, apps will get updated frequently I would rather not make that effort. We are getting much more stable now, but still there are some changes we will want to make regarding autodock.
