Turn off or turn on Download Intelligence

Download Insight protects your computer against any unsafe file that you may run or execute after you download it using a supported browser. By default, the Download Intelligence option is turned on. In this case, Download Insight notifies you about the reputation levels of any executable file that you download. The reputation details that Download Insight provides indicate whether the downloaded file is safe to install.

There may be times when you want to turn off Download Insight. For example, if you want to download an unsafe file. In this case, you must turn off Download Insight so that your Norton product lets you download the file and does not remove it from your computer.
