Unauthorized Access blocked (open file)

Need help, Norton internet security has blocked System mechanic  analyzer from accessing NIS_18.1.0.37\BASH\BashOpts.bak

I'm just wondering what (open file) means in relations to this, does it mean System mechanic tried to open the file, or does it mean the file is open?

Re: Unauthorized Access blocked (open file)

It just means that "System mechanic  analyzer" has somehow touched a Norton file. It doesn't have to have been trying to open anything, just a scan will have done it. This is perfectly normal and nothing to worry about. Several Microsoft processes will be blocked every day, too, and this is normal and fine.
