gabranth has made the point. I suppose Symantec is paid by software vendors to catch keygens whether they suppose a threat to the user or not. So I sugget Symantec to live on that money because I will not pay them to keep on bothering me a number of times a day with a nasty message which I haven't any control against.
On the other side I have to keep disabling Auto-protect to install LibreOffice. EU lawyers should have a look at this.
So I am very glad that Symantec has this beautiful idea "Under consideration" but I am looking forward to my 81 days licence resting days to letting it expire and gladly substitute it for another option that transparently protects my interests and not big software vendors ones.

Users do not have to upload his own files to some unknown company. This is break property of users to have their own files and not to do illegal copies without asking User!

Still waiting for a fix.....
Seems that we don't get a fix.
Do Norton 2013 products let the user decide whether or not to quarantine a file?
