Downloaded game is "not safe and has been removed."

I downloaded a game off the internet and unzipped it, but when I attempted to run it, Norton 360 determined the files to be a threat and removed them. I did some research and found out that if I temporarily turn off the Download Intelligence, then unzip and run the game, it works fine. Right up until I turn off the computer. The next time I boot up, it removes the files again, whether I run the game or not.  How do I tell Norton that everything in this file is safe and to stop removing it?

Hello althor1170. Please post a screenshot of the detection you are seeing along with the name of the game and where you are downloading it from. Here is how to post a screenshot in thread.
