Blocked element by Norton Security

Added on February 11th, 2015

Good Morning

Since few days I check the history of Norton Security and one element is blocked a dozen times everyday. This element is c/Windows/system32/svchost/exe.

What to do? Is it dangerous?

Thank you



In your history section, look to the right of the table in the “Details” to “Recommended Action”, if no action is required, no worries! You can click on “More Info” at the bottom right for advanced details. I would like to add that this happens whenever a program attempts to access Norton.

This feature is a self-defense of Norton to back up its files and folders by external factors in the program.
