Unauthorized access logged - Message Suppression

I am getting an unauthorized access logged message against ccSvcHst.exe every time Ad-Aware does its scan. I was wondering if there was a way to authorize the Ad-Aware task AAWSERVICE.EXE so that Norton would not flag the error anymore. Seeing this error every time I look at the logs might mask another valid error if I happen to miss it during my browse.

If the notation says that it is logged, it means that the action has been allowed.  Every time you scan Norton with some other product, you will get that notation.  It already is authorised to some degree or it would not allow it at all.  You can turn off tamper protection in your miscellaneous settings, but it leaves your Norton product vulnerable.

No, there is no way to prevent logging the event other than to stop doing whatever causes the event. In your case this means either not running Ad-Aware or the Ad-Aware team changing the program to not request write access to your Norton program. As already pointed out, Ad-Aware is actually being granted access, but only to read/inspect your Norton program. For integretity of your Norton program, Ad-Aware won't be allowed to modify though.
