As the header reads, i am getting these in my security logs constantly as of weds the 16 of feb before this date there was near none.
now i know they are usally harmless, just norton doing its thing, the weird part is this.
they are all from different files, but each file that it detects it from is not just trying to access one part of nortons, it is trying to access multiple areas of it at the one time is this normal? for example
at 10:07 i got
Actor C:\Program files\internet explorer\iexplore.exe
actor PID 5320
then about 20 entrys all of the same actor and actor PID but different targets in norton 360 various .dll's and what not.
i thought this may have been internet explorer doing this but in my log there is files doing it such as notepad varioud windows .exe even some PC games .exe doing it
should i be worried.
Solved! Go to Solution.

The same exact thing started happening to me this morning. I'm using Norton Internet Security, though.
Looks like an update caused this as it updated shortly before these blocked messages started to appear.

I have had the same experience since February 14--an expression of someone's love and care?
Now the startup time is slower than a snail's pace. What's happening?

AND, I too have the same thing. I counted over 353 reports in just one minute of logged time duration, and my machine was offline.
Like above, it tries to hit different Norton files.

Are you on comcast? I am getting my norton via comcast, do you know if I can update to V5??

Norton 360 and Comcast's Norton Security Suite are independent of each other, so you cannot upgrade from CNSS to a version of Norton 360.

Are you using NIS/NAV/N360 2010 or 2011? We've addressed extraneous logging with our latest SONAR update (Feb 28, 2011)

Using whatever ComCast provides. But I suspect your update did take care of it as I see no more logs.
Thanks for the feedback.
