Norton Auto-Protect preventing .pdf documents from opening


Using Norton Security for Windows 10, I am unable to open .pdf documents while Auto-Protect is enabled. Instead, I get a pop-up stating "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item." When I disable Auto-Protect, I am able to open .pdf documents successfully.  Please advise.
