Did you try Exclude (if you fully trust - watch for bundled offer) => Apply All


Configure Exclusions/Low Risks settings

Exclusions / Low Risks options lets you exclude disks, folders, and files from risk and Auto-Protect scans. It provides a way for you to exclude known and safe files or application that are detected as a low-security risk.

Excluding low-risk items from scans reduces your protection and should be used only if you have a specific need.

Configure Norton to exclude low-risk items ›

By default, Norton removes risks automatically. If you want Norton to ignore low-risk items or ask you what to do whenever Norton detects a low-risk item, you can configure Low Risks.

CONFIGURE LOW RISKS OPTION

In the Scans and Risks tab, under Exclusions/Low Risks, in the Low Risks row:

    • To let Norton remove the risk, move the switch to Remove.

    • To let Norton ignore the risk, move the switch to Ignore.

    • To let Norton to ask you to respond to a risk, move the switch to the Ask Me state.

Re: AntiVirus Won't allow a download to update PDF Creator Software

Hello,

First thing first. Thank you bjm_! I went with your first suggestion and that got me over the hump. Of course

I also tried the 'exclude/fix' option at the time and that deleted the download. Went back and shopped the 

'fix' option and upgraded the software like a charm. 

I hold onto your other solutions on case I need them later on. Even the one where you reminded me to watch 

out for and to skip the 'bundle option' that they always throw at you. I also appreciatiate your quick response.

I hope the rest of your day goes well. Thanks again bjm_!
