I just downloaded libre office 3.6.2 and its help file. Norton Internet Security flagged and removed the help file installer for containing a virus
Probably due to "WS.Reputation.1".
It isn't a virus, but Symantec's "the wisdom of crowds". ;)
Read more... → WS.Reputation.1.
You may restore the file from Norton's "quarantine"
"Security History → Quarantine → Options" (→ detailed).
[By the way: I could install
"LibO_22.214.171.124_Win_x86_helppack_en-US.msi" without any problems, but now a manual "insight network scan" with Norton Internet Security removed this file (with a recoverable backup in the "Security History Quarantine").]

Status: RESOLVED NOTOURBUG
Personally, for an Anti-Virus I use Microsoft's own Security Essentials, I've never had false positive, nor have I had problems with malware on my system. Might be something to consider when you subscription for Norton comes up for renewal. you can find it at http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/products/security-essentials if you're interested.
