Win32.exe was in the blender portable zip 293.7 LTS Norton Removed it

Anyone know anything about the file win32.exe it was in the 293.7 LTS portable zip, and Norton removed it when I extracted the file. Do we have the option of using a hash tag when downloading files from ?
The tags for the file I downloaded is

It’s most likely nothing. Keep in mind that companies like Norton profit from your paranoia. Modern operating systems and web browsers are extremely safe as long as you don’t deliberately run programs from unofficial/shady sources. Windows Defender is a really good alternative which won’t annoy you with false positives, because Microsoft actually has reasons to care about your trust in the product.
