Norton deleting a program

So I have been trying to play a game (Touhou 11) and norton keeps deleting the english patch when I try to run it.

It isn't quarantining it, it is deleting it.

I have been trying to restore it, but there is no option to. Not even in the "More Options" button.

Re: Norton deleting a program

bjm_'s steps should cover the issue. It is interesting that a patch gets detected as malware though. I mean, theoretically, it is overriding information, but still. Let us know if the Ws.Reputation.1 fix helps.
