This issue has been solved. See solution.

I need to make a centralized exception for a file that is named as a risk "Suspicious.Cloud.5.A"   Quarantine

the problem is that the file is located on a random place on the client

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local settings\Temp\7zS101.tmp\tcapa-conf_release_1-0-0.exe

next time

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local settings\Temp\7zS104.tmp\tcapa-conf_release_1-0-0.exe

SEP 12.1.1000   & 12.1.671

Symantec is Detecting this Files due to suspicious activity.

Suspicious.Cloud.5 is a detection technology designed to detect entirely new malware threats without traditional signatures. This technology is aimed at detecting malicious software that has been intentionally mutated or morphed by attackers. 

Incase, if these files are good files, you can submit these files to the Symantec Security Response Team via,


Also, See Creating exceptions for Symantec Endpoint Protection.

See Creating exceptions from log events in Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager.
