+1 on this.
You could always make it a setting that is off by default so the actual behaviour remains unchanged and at the same time also cater to the more computer-savvy audience.
This would make an excellent addition and I'm sure you would get more support for that.

Yes, I would like to see this option added as well. I've been nailed a few times by NIS auto-deleting files that I know are OK and have had to turn it OFF to get it out of the way temporarily.

My original post was about a month ago and its status is still "New Idea". When is it likely to be updated to (e.g.) "Under Consideration"?
Do Symantec consider all new Norton Product ideas or are some ignored without comment?
It would be nice to get some feedback from Symantec on this one, especially as it has gained so much support from other users.

I think it should scan the file then ask the user is it safe to store *.somefile name to " safe directory" where the file can be opened and tested ( ex... like win zip) to see if it is a reliable file and that there is no hackware or spyware in it. if there is a issue then ask user if they want to fix problem or bypass and continue install. when it is installed or ran not shal use a monitor of the program and make sure that it don't change any key settings in the o.s. (ex... like a self duplicator) and check to see were it "dials home" at and check to make sure that it is a reliable source (ex.. like a popup trojan or back dialer) Norton allready does this automaticly but doesn't let the user have any input... input would be nice!

No progress on this? I reinstalled NIS 2011 on my machines and am mostly happy with it. However, when I ran a full scan on my desktop machine it deleted 6 files I would rather it had not messed with. It would not let me restore 2 of them. It is my machine and they are my files. An internet security suite should be a tool, not something that takes over my computer.

I've had this too, however in all but one case, the quarantine has been accurate.
The idea should be expanded, there should be 3 options; trust, quarantine, and remove, as there's always a possibility that the threat has an anti-quarantine counter-measure, or a 2nd threat comprimises your quarantine information.
