Ok today I was checking my Norton log and it seems I may have a problem. Here is what is going down:
Every hour or so Norton Internet Security says that it has blocked Unaothurized Access the thing it has blocked: C:\Program FILES\GOOGLE\UPDATE\GOOGLEUPDATE.exe and the place it has targeted: C:\Program Files\NortonInternetSecurity\Engine\126.96.36.199\ccsvchst.exe. My question is should I be worried about this or is there something i can do.
Well, the GOOGLEUPDATE.exe is what is used to update Google Chrome (and any other Google software you have installed). It appears Norton is a little paranoid about this. We call this a false positive. Norton should allow you to create an exception for that file so it can access the internet (or else your Google software will be out of date).
