NIS has me locked out of my 'Documents and Settings' directory?
I'm running the NIS that came free with my new Win 7 laptop. I am evaluating whether I want to keep it or replace it with something else.
Tonight I downloaded a compressed file (.rar) to a directory reserved for that sort of thing. NIS was running and didn't complain when I did the download. I used WinRAR to extract the .exe file to my 'Documents and Settings' directory and BAM!!, NIS jumped all over it as a Trojan! Now when I use Windows Explorer to go look at my files I see a little lock icon on my 'Documents and Settings' directory and I can't get past the lock to see any of my files in that directory!
Yes, NIS thinks that the file I expanded is a Trojan (it isn't, but it may look like one), but I can't see any way to tell NIS that I'll accept the risk and that it should ignore my "Trojan" file. Also, I can't see any way to go look at any of the hundreds of other files down the directory hierarchy (behind the lock) of 'Documents and Settings'. How can I convince NIS to unlock my 'Documents and Settings' directory and to ignore the downloaded file that triggered the Protect action in the first place?
Any advice will be greatfully received.
