Norton is detecting Adblock plus as a virus then deletes it for safety reasons, I tested it on Virus total and it came with this: https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/089b949141a0ad6
and I put this problem in the Adblock plus forms too: https://adblockplus.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=16&t

You can submit the file as a false positive at the following site.

This link shows AdBlock Plus being in development for IE https://adblockplus.org/en/internet-explorer
Norton does not support beta software. It is probably being detected by the Download intelligence as an unknown file.

Not sure which version of IE that you are using but in IE 10 you can try "tracking protection", there are filter lists that are based on those used by Adblock Plus. I would give it a try and see if it can give you at least some of the protection that you get from Adblock Plus in Firefox...
There are still a lot of issues with Adblock Plus for IE and I for one wouldn't use it on my daily machine just yet.
