How to Stop norton from deleting my files

I've been using Microsoft visual studio to make games and when I run the game in visual studio Norton pops up and says that its a virus "Heur.AdvML.A". I tell Norton not to scan it in future scans then I click restore files but it still deletes them. The specific file its targeting is the .exe file in c:\users\MYNAME\source\repos\GAMENAME\GAMENAME\obj\debug\GAMENAME.exe if anyone knows how to stop Norton from deleting these files please help me.

Have you tried manually trusting the files in question?

You need to create a folder for all your programming projects. Then exclude that folder from both sections noted in the image below.  

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.
