NIS 2010 Version 126.96.36.199
Vista OS 32 bit home premium with Vista SP2
Tuesday 12/14/10, I ran the monthly microsoft updates.
I noticed in the Security History Logs, under Norton Product Tamper Protection
Unauthorized Action Blocked
Now I think MRT.EXE is the Microsoft Malicious Software Removal tool that they deliver every month with updates
But this is the first time I have seen it show as an item in Norton Product Tamper Protection.
I know that Tamper Protection just stops items from getting to Norton Items. But I have never seen this logged before
Did the Microsoft Malicious Software Removal tool screw with my NIS 2010?
Is this an oddity that I should be concerned with?

no it's nothing to worry about. Microsoft just simply changed something in the MRT tool (it is a bit more agressive now), and during its scan it checks some of the Norton files as well, and this is how your NIS reacts to the checking.
