Malwarebytes Beta is being flagged as malicious

Hello, I have been trying to download some of Malwarebytes beta software from there forum, from malwarebytes.com the real site, and Norton keeps flagging it as dangerous.  I have tried everything I know.  Is there a way to fix this.  I tried to put it in the excluded folder but no success, now it just gave me a pop up that it needs to restart to clean the security risk, that I have only been working on for the last half hour or so.

It won't let me recommend an action it just deletes it.

Help,

Mike

Hi, Mike. Try turning detections off, and then download the MBytes beta.

If Norton doesn't pounce on it and quarantine it, you can then install and then restart protection.

Then try excluding it. You can also set detections options under Settings>Antivirus to ASK.

Hello

Perhaps the issue is that Norton does not support Beta programs. Are you using a Windows Administrator user account?

Thanks.
