I have Windows 10 and want to install the program FS Water Configurator (v 3.15) but Norton does not allow antivirus because it classifies the program as threat WS. REPUTATION. 1, which describes in the following terms. What can I do? Thanks:

WS.Reputation.1 is a detection for files that have a low reputation score based on analyzing data from Symantec’s community of users and therefore are likely to be security risks. Detections of this type are based on Symantec’s reputation-based security technology. Because this detection is based on a reputation score, it does not represent a specific class of threat like adware or spyware, but instead applies to all threat categories.

The reputation-based system uses "the wisdom of crowds" (Symantec’s tens of millions of end users) connected to cloud-based intelligence to compute a reputation score for an application, and in the process identify malicious software in an entirely new way beyond traditional signatures and behavior-based detection techniques.

I guess either report to symantec that its a false positive, or turn it off.
