Hello manicthemanic

 

Welcome to the Norton Community Forum

 

Can you please tell us what Norton product you have and the version number? What operating system and service pack and is it 32 or 64 bit please.?

Success always occurs in private and failure in full view.

Hello manicthemanic,

 

What you see is the Norton Insight Network details. This is the list of reputation information for files discovered from the Norton Community. 

 

As of this post, there are 118,792,387 known good files and 27,001,448 known bad files. 

 

These are not statistics for your specific computer, but for reputation information built from the Norton Community.

 

Sorry for the scare. :smileyhappy:
