     Anti-virus programs that scan the installation folder for an atom, molecule or cloud could conflict with the operation of the atom, molecule or cloud.
     The Anti-virus programs will attempt to access the files while the atom, molecule or cloud is running and cause conflicts.  Also the anti-virus program
     may touch the files as a different user which could cause permission issues.

     Possible behaviors include:
     - unable to read, write or execute files
     - missing files or references to files
     - unable to start an atom or node
     - unable to stop an atom or node
     - one molecule node preventing another molecule node from starting

Disable the anti-virus program from running against the atom, molecule or cloud installation folder 
Program the anti-virus program to run against the atom, molecule or cloud installation folder 

during planned maintenance windows and then check the anti-virus quarantine folder for any valid files
that may have been quarantined, but should not have been.
