I have just updated to the latest version of Moneydance 2.0 and Norton is telling me that it does not have a valid digital signature. Please advise.

    I think you mean Moneydance 2024, Moneydance 2.0 was back in the late 1990's.

    This unfortunately is pretty typical for Norton with new versions of Moneydance, it happens more often than not.

    I would suggest adding an exception to Norton for Moneydance.

    Yes you are correct. Moneydance 2024.

    Norton Data Protector also blocked a suspicious action by Moneydance.exe:

    Is this related or something to be concerned about?

    From a Norton perspective no, from a Moneydance perspective perhaps.

    It suggests to me that you may be storing you core Moneydance data files on a One Drive volume.

    Storing your core Moneydance file on any sort of shared storage can be a really bad idea, we have seen many instances where this causes corruption of the file because of the way these services work.

    You core files should always be stored in a local folder. You can use a One drive volume as a destination for your backups if you wish.

    You are correct. I believe my files are stored on OneDrive. I have never
    had a problem until this update. I will look at moving them to a local
    folder. Thanks so much for your help!

    If you have not have any problems you can consider yourself lucky. It can happen at any time without any warning, and if it does happen it can be quite bad to the point of saying that we hope you have a good backup.
