Norton removing anastasiy extension manager and stops its installation

When I try to install Anastasiy's Extension Manager (for use in Photoshop) Norton Security stops the action saying that it contains a threat:  WS.Reputation.1. 

I want to install the MagicPicker extension in Photoshop and Anastasiy says I should disable my  NS and let the file install.  Can anyone please advise me if this would be safe?

Thanks
