@kentkuhn You have to temporarily find and disable the feature in your anti-virus software that is causing the problem. Failing that, you can stop using your AV software and use Microsoft Defender for awhile or permanently. Nothing protects better than Defender. Microsoft is the base that all the other AV software use to detect viruses. I only use Norton because it gave me a great deal for all my devices including my mobile devices which are not covered by Defender, unfortunately. But Norton can be a pain in the butt sometimes and I think I have it disabled on 3 desktops now. I have not had any problems with Defender.
