AMD rule set to custom

I keep getting popups from my Norton stating a "rule" is being acknowledged for AMD catalyst.  I went into settings and that program is set to "custom".  I don't know what it is for or why it is set to custom.  I am running Windows 10 on a new HP Pavilion, so I would assume AMD graphics drives are compatible with my PC and should be okay to just run.  It is a .exe file that the rule applies to.  Any information would be helpful. 

thanks

If your firewall is set to Automatic Program Control, you can set the rule to Allow, if you're sure the file is safe.

Re: AMD rule set to custom

@Gizelle:

were you trying to install the AMD catalyst driver? If so, you may disable your Norton TEMPORARILY, and remember to run that downloaded exe file as the admin user (Right-click > choose the said option on the menu).

More, beware of "Sneaky Bloatware When Updating Hardware Drivers". Anyway, you may try uninstalling AMD Gaming Evolved (aka, Raptr) and/or few other junkware at a later date.

For more info, you may Chat with Norton Support.

Please post back if this or any other comment solves your problem. THX...

Re: AMD rule set to custom

I was not trying to do anything but work on email and facebook.  The pop up was from Norton Security.  My computer is a new HP Pavilion, so does have AMD graphics card.  I trust AMD so will change from custom to Allow.  I don't do any gaming, but am a Web Developer and use Photoshop a lot.
