Then I tried turned off Advanced Protection then both turned off and I turned on AntiVirus, see Advanced Protection still off and Auto-protect still disabled. I tested extracted the zip file to a folder and NIS2009 blocked it when Auto-protect is disabled.

Symantec 10.2.xx is old version, here is new version 11 available which now have PROACTIVE feature so I suggest you to upgrade to the latest version.
