Norton AntiVirus blocking SuperAntiSpyware?
I've had Norton AntiVirus for over a year and haven't had a probelem, but recently, I think it started blocking the SuperAntiSpyware Update application. I've checked Norton's Norton Product Tamper Protection and it has been blocking SuperAntiSpyware.exe
For about a week when I turn on my computer, I'm greeted with an error message that says: "SuperAntiSpyware Update Application has encountered a problem and needs to close". At the same time, I also lose my internet connection, but the strange thing was that it wasn't the regular "Cannot display this webpage" screen. It was my internet providers page, with my modem's logo, "Motorola".
It had my user ID and password entered with a button that said "Connect". The URL for the page was my IP address. I've never seen a page like this before. (anyone else seen this page before?)
I unplug my modem and replug it and my internet connection is back and I can update SAS's definitions.
Also...(probably not connect to this but would still like an opionion) a few days ago I head some strange noises from my computer's spekers (that's happened when my computer's been infected with a virus before) I scanned with SAS and it found a Trojan.Agent/Gen-Faker[desc]
Scanned with Norton, and Malwarebytes as well and found nothing else except for some adware.tracking cookies.
But Today I heard the same noise again and scanned, this time in safe mode with all 3 programs and found nothing else. No sounds so far.
So I wanted to know what I should do with my Norton blocking SAS problem. Is it just a mistake or is there a reason why Norton's been blocking it?
And any advice for that trojan? Anything else I could do to try and see if my computer's really clean?
