Quilt Assistant Software installer deleted as untrustworthy
I am trying to install some free quilt design software called QuiltAssistant V2.10. When I download the installer from the developer's website Norton flags it as untrustworthy and removes it. The installer is called QA_Installer_v2.25.exe. When I read the details tab, it says: "Threat type: Insight Network Threat. There are many indications that this file is untrustworthy and therefore not safe. Threat name: WS.Reputation.1 I get the impression that the file is deleted because of it's name and not due to the results of a scan. But I'm no expert so am not certain of this.
I emailed the developer, Arnout Cosman, and he says that this is a false positive but all he could recommend was that I disable Norton to install it.
I don't know how to do this. Also, I would like the file to be scanned for specific threats not just rejected because it might have a name similar to something that is a threat.
Thanks in advance for all help offered.
