How to report a file for White Listing

Hello, this morning I wanted to try the demo of some software but Norton blocked and deleted the installer. I then downloaded the file on a computer that does not yet have Norton installed. I then ran the installer through Virus Total and the only AV that reported an issue was Norton. How does one submit a file for examination and White Listing by Norton ? It's probably just a False Positive

Thank you all, that was fast. The file now passes. I've bookmarked the link to the file submission page and will use that if there are any future issues. I'll pass the news on to KiloHearts as well.
