I navigated to to log in and download my credit card account statements as PDF file.
Could not get the PDF file (Credit Card company account statement) because after download IE11 deleted as it complained that it contained a Virus. 
Had to download the PDF file with Chrome browser without any problem.
I run Symantec Endpoint Protection (updated virus definition files from 9 Nov 2013) which did not complain about anything on this file (active virus scan on the same PDF file and nothing found).

I am experiencing the exact same issue.

I am running Windows 7 (Ultimate) 64bit. I am also running Symantec SEP (latest version)
Last week, I upgrade from IE9 directly to 11 (via the Microsoft updates) and am no longer able to download any files from any web site via IE11. Any attempt displays a message the download was canceled because the file contained a virus.

I reverted back to IE9 by removing the Windows Update for IE11 and can (once again download files)

I subsequently, virtualized a back-up of my laptop prior to the update and am testing to see if the issue is related to Symantec SEP or the fact that I skipped IE10 first.
