You discover that turning off Download Insight does not disable the automatic trust of files from sites listed on the trusted/intranet site list from Internet Explorer.
This behavior is working as designed.
The setting Automatically trust any file downloaded from an intranet website, which can be found in the Virus and Spyware Protection in the Download Insight settings, also applies to Insight Lookup, and the manual scan known as CloudScan. Therefore, if this setting is enabled, it continues to function even if Download Insight is disabled.
Note: In some builds of Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1, Automatically trust any file downloaded from an intranet website may appear grayed out if it is checked but Download Insight is disabled. In this scenario, Automatically trust any file downloaded from an intranet website still continues to function.
