Norton deleting files
How to stop norton from deleting your downloads
Jetcoasterfan’s original post: How can I prevent Norton from deleting the exe file without uninstalling the software? Really, I’m not sure. I’ve had a lot of issues with Norton, so you may want to look into another antivirus. If you don’t want to delete Norton, I’m not sure how to keep the EXE file. You should look it up, but apart from that, I’m not sure. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Norton is a lousy antivirus program. It scans your device with an excessive amount of RAM. AdCap is a secure exe, according to Emsisoft AntiMalware. You may even go to quarantaine and inform it that the file is secure if you say it’s not a virus. The antisoftware group would then rescan it with several different antiviruses. Norton has never been a successful antivirus program and needs to learn a lot.
Norton, which is also known as Norton X, is a security software application.
Regarding your question, OP, I will try to respond in the most “clear” manner possible.
To do so, open Norton, go to settings, then to “Detailed Settings” select the antivirus, then “Scans and Risks” go to “Exclusions / Low Risks” where you will find a “configure +” next to “Sonar” and “Items to Exclude from Auto-Protect” in this section, add the exe file, then click “configure” and a window with the name “Real time eclusion” will pop up.
This will prevent the auto scan from deleting other files, and the things to exclude will save your exe file from being deleted by the antivirus.
You might also want to download the complete manual from Symantec, which contains more information about sonar, signatures, and other topics on pages 37 to 44.

Thank you. That’s how I think my settings are. ==here’s how it went down== As previously mentioned, I am no longer able to replicate it. Also, I’ve searched through all of the history (recent, complete, scan results, resolved security risks, unresolved security risks, quarantine, sonar, intrusion prevention, download insight, and so on), but this entry is no longer there. It’s weird. In any case…=
Hello there, thewul.
Another journal entry should be you.
You may delete the file from quarantine and prevent it from being investigated further.
Only perform these acts if you are absolutely confident that the file is secure.

Norton AntiVirus, 360, Internet Protection, and other Norton products can flag older versions of Voxler as threats and quarantine them. They will no longer be able to run until this occurs. Our platform is free of viruses and other security risks. We partnered with Norton to have our program no longer be flagged as a possible security threat. This problem does not exist in current versions.
The first or second time you open the program after it has been installed (or if you install the software directly from the EXE file), Norton can quarantine the application EXE file (i.e. Voxler.exe), preventing it from being used. The application EXE file must be restored from quarantine before the program can be opened and used.
Please report this false positive to Symantec so that we can correct this in the future (Norton). You can use Norton’s built-in Send to Symantec function to accomplish this. This is achieved automatically by default in most Norton products. If the automatic submission has been disabled, you can apply this to Symantec manually by:
How to recover files norton internet security deleted
If you’re looking for information about how to restore files deleted by Norton, you’ve come to the right spot. The following sections discuss two methods for recovering files deleted by Norton. Let’s get started retrieving the deleted files as soon as possible. Otherwise, you might be forever lost.
When Norton informs you that some important files have been contaminated with the virus, it can ask you if you want to remove them. You can say Yes or No, and it will take some time to find out if these files are missing. Norton can delete them or place them in the Quarantined folder, where they will be removed from your computer after a period of time, ensuring that these files are not critical to you. If you need these files, you can restore them from the Quarantined folder in this case. To do so, you must first determine where Norton quarantined files are kept. Do not be concerned; simply follow the steps to locate it.
This method can be used to retrieve files that have been transferred to the quarantine folder by Norton. For the most part, it works. If you can’t find the Norton-deleted files there, you’ll need to learn how to restore Norton-deleted files using data recovery tools.
