Any ideas about this anybody? Using NSW2002 and NIS2002. A component of Nortons's Script Blocking is sbserv.exe. This is a very early starter and is always the first on PG3's Alert list. This morning, for the first time I enabled PG's "Block new and changed programs". I then noticed on reboot that sbserv.exe was blocked from running. I then put it into Protection - still getting blocked, so I enabled install Global Hooks, install Drivers/Service and also to Access Physical Memory. Nothing has made any difference and it is still blocked from running. So at the moment I have disabled "Block new and changed programs" and it is back to normal. Any ideas anybody? (apart from ditching Norton that is.) I would like at sometime to use the option of blocking new/changed programs but more importantly I guess that the script blocking part of Norton is not messed up.
