Norton Insight

Hi Guys
Today I checked the Norton insight and went to my untrusted files and it came up with 108 untrusted files I'll double check when I'm next on my computer but it was around that marker!! The last time I looked I only had 15 in there, my computer is a HP with Intel inside so that would explain why I'm getting things from Intel for example there's one called Rebbeca.exe which from what I researched is used to back up files. When I looked into the files they were all given a green thing on them with a raiting of 'Good' so why are they inside there? I don't remember installing/downloading them so they may of been automatic things from HP or Intell. Should I be worried at all about this? A quick scan ran today while idle and no threats were found. I run full scans on Thursday so I'll know if I pick anything up then. For the record I don't download anything onto my computer the last thing I did download was FireFox and that was last month.

Should I be concerned?
Thanks a lot guys :)

Re: Norton Insight

Trusted files are allowed to run with minimal oversight and can be skipped during scans.  "Untrusted" simply means that Norton has not yet established the trustworthiness of a file, and therefore the file will be subject to normal scrutiny.  There is no reason to be concerned.

Re: Norton Insight

Yep, if there is anything that needs Norton's attention, Norton will take care of it on it's own.  If there is any action a user needs to take, Norton will let you know.
