Quarantine issue

So, talking about quarantine and how Norton automatically puts untrusted files in there.

I'm the type of person that likes playing modded games but still not getting my pc infected from those mod files. Lately, I've been downloading some addons as per usual, always ignoring the ws.reputation1 that pops up when I unrar the file, "excluding the archive's id from future verifications". Thing is, Since yesterday, I've been having issues letting my mod files trough without Norton putting em' on quarantine: Basically, Norton is now putting the files as "Placed In Quarantine Manually" and I can't restore the file with Norton allowing me to make it ignore the file, like, the button on the restoring confirmation simply doesn't appear, and I can't "Remove this file from the manually placed list". I swear, and now its also "manually blocking" my other mod files, I'm scared to launch my games with Norton blocking the mod files.

I hope I don't have to deactivate my Lovely Norton Security just so I can play my games normally.

By the way its Download Insight that's putting it on quarantine.



Re: Quarantine issue


List your games .exe under Settings>Administrative Settings>Silent Mode Settings.>Quiet Mode on Detection of>User-Specified Programs>Configure

Settings>Antivirus>Scans and Risks>Exclusions/Low Risks>Items to Exclude From Auto-Protect, SONAR, and Download Intelligence Detection>Configure

You can list your games in there if you are sure that your games and mods are clean.
