Security Activity During Silent Mode Question Referring to MBAM

Recommended Posts

After I was done playing a game on Steam, Norton came up with the above message. I tried to get info on what occured. It said that the "actor" was the MBAM file name and the "target" was Norton file name. It also says the action was access process data. This occurred also after I played the Sims but not on Steam Sorry if the info doesn't look right, I tried writing it down.

It's hard to say, without a screen shot or the exact wording of the message.
It sounds as if MBAM may have been "poking" Norton, as one might expect -- that would be nothing to worry about.


Do you have mutual exclusions set between the programs?
To add Norton to MBAM Malware Exclusions, please refer to the attached screen shot (it shows *my* AV, not Norton, but the idea is the same).
To add MBAM to Norton, please see the instructions below.
