I think some improvement is needed.

OK - I'll spell it out:
In AV-Comparatives September, 2017 Malware Protection Test, Norton Security 22.214.171.124 had an most-excellent detection rate of 99.99% on a set of 20,011 malware samples. (The samples were assembled after consulting telemetry data with the aim of including recent, prevalent samples that are endangering users in the field.)
However, during the test, Norton Security 126.96.36.199 detected 274 safe files as malware (False Positives). The average rate of false positives for the 20 other tested Anti-Malware programs was 14.5, and would have been much lower but for a False Positive score of 80 by Trend Micro, another FP outlier, the program with the next highest number of FP's after Norton Security. For comparative purposes: Emsisoft Anti Malware also detected 99.99% of the malware samples, but its False Positive Score was only 6; Avast also detected 99.99% of the malware samples, but its False Positiver Score was 9; AVG detected 99.99% of the malware samples but its False Positive Score was 9. This is undoubtedly why The OP stated: "I think some improvement is needed."
The Malware Protection Test assesses a security program’s ability to protect a system against infection by malicious files before, during or after execution. The methodology used for each product tested is as follows. Prior to execution, all the test samples are subjected to on-access and on-demand scans by the security program, with each of these being done both offline and online. Any samples that have not been detected by any of these scans are then executed on the test system, with Internet/cloud access available, to allow e.g. behavioural detection features to come into play.
