How can I stop auto-deletion of exe files by NS?

Whenever my Norton Security thinks that it found a virus in an EXE file, this file is deleted. But I set "Automatically remove risks" to "Ask" (I don't know the original phrase, I translated it from the German version). There is also the option "Remove risks when nobody uses the PC" which is set to "Ignore". But the files are still deleted. Why?

Blocking is OK, but deletion not, because I often have false-positives. And restoring the files often result in destroyed files (at least changed files).
