Norton and Short Cuts

The last two times I’ve rebooted my machine, I’ve gotten an odd error from Norton AntiVirus:

Norton AntiVirus 2005 does not support the repair feature…

Turns out - and pinch me because I must be dreaming - but the error occurred because I dared to move my short cuts. Am I wrong or is it insane for a program to throw an error because it can’t find shortcuts? Is this some security check? Are there viruses that attack Norton by moving the shortcuts? I can see that as a valid way to attack a system, but the program can’t handle it a bit nicer?
