Can't stop "Malicious Download Detected" from blocking download of my own photo
There is a closed thread stating the solution to Norton Antivirus arbitrarily blocking download of a safe file is to turn off Download Intelligence and then download the file. That doesn't work. For just one of two of my own photos I was downloading to my PC from Google Drive, Norton Antivirus (which is fully up-to-date) repeatedly refuses to download the file and displays the Malicious Download Detected, Download Cancelled pop-up. It does so even if I temporarily switch off Download Intelligence. I want to flag the problem and note the solution in the closed thread doesn't work.
(I found a workaround by emailing myself the identical file and Norton didn't block downloading/saving the emailed photo to my computer. I also checked and Norton did not block this same file when copying the file to my computer from my phone using a USB port.)
