How to stop norton from removing a file

I downloaded a game from itch.io and norton keeps removing it. I've gone through quarenteen to get it out of there and I've restored the file. Even though I do that, norton keeps removing it, over and over again. I'd like to know how to run the game without norton freaking out.

Re: How to stop norton from removing a file

@Mschleig:

you may get started w/ the below steps:

  • get the admin access;
  • temporarily disable your internet connection;
  • temporarily turn off Norton protection by disabling auto-protect & smart firewall;
  • add your game app to Exclusions in Norton by following flo's comment above
  • reboot to make changes take effect
  • ensure everything part of Norton is running when you get the things done.

Thx :)
