Norman AV is confusing

I sent over an .eps (Adobe Illustrator) file to a guy at work yesterday, and when he opened it Norman Antivirus started yelling about a trojan and threw loads of .dll files in quarantine (only dll’s for some of his installed Adobe programs). Since I got the file from someone else it thought that Norman could be right and I let the files live in quarantine, removed Adobe CS3 and did a fresh install.

I told the creator of the eps file about this and she did some virus scanning on her computer but did not find anything (she uses AVG). I thought that was weird so when I got to work this morning I took some of the files out of the quarantine and uploaded some of them to Norman’s Sandbox service. And guess what, they all came out clean. What gives?!
