Default Lock Files

Is there any way to "lock" my files so that my Anti-virus can't access them?

Basically what's happening is when I put my thumb drive into my PC, it's picking up some of my shady files as viruses, and automatically deleting them. So besides disabling my anti-virus, is there any way to protect these files?

Yeah, I tried that, it still deleted it. If I rename the files, will it still detect them?

It's actually the school's antivirus, which is why I didn't want to disable it (even though I can), but getting my files deleted every time I try to edit some stupid report at school is annoying...

Anyway, it's Norton Symantec - ew. There's no confirmation, once a box pops up it's just the box that's telling me which files it deleted.
