how to quarantine or safely delete a suspicious download file

Although Norton Security scans a downloaded file for my RCA Digital Voice Recorder --- RCADIGITALVOICEMGR5112.exe ---  as "safe", the file is rated suspicious by VirusTotal.  I was looking for a way to install the RCA Digital Voice Manager on my PC, but this downloaded file does not appear to be what I want anyway.  Although downloaded, I did not execute or install.   I could simply delete, but I thought maybe quarantine would be better.  However, my 22.8.1.14 version of Norton Security does not seem to have a manual quarantine option where I can select a file myself to quarantine [from Web research, prior NS versions seemed to have this option as instructions to do so can be found].   Any suggestions as what might be best to do to get rid of this downloaded file?  Running current version 1607 of Windows 10.  Thanks much.

If you are not going to use it just delete it. There would be no benefit to quarantining the file.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.

The software is safe. I downloaded it myself. You are not using Virustotal as it was designed. If 10+ antiviruses detect it as malicious and those 10+ are top notch companies then chances are it is malicious. But only 2 antiviruses found it malicious. A toolbar which is no big deal.

Hey, Sophos. Did you download it on your 200+ computers, or just the one ?
