traffic blocked from ntoskrnl.exe
First of, I can see from a simple google search that this question was answered many times on the old forum. But trying to read any of the old messages forced me to jump through 30 minutes of hoops to join this "improved" forum.
More to the point:
I have installed SEP11 M4 on a new HP Netbook, running XP Home Edition with SP3. Now I receive the following warning:
Traffic has been blocked from this application: NTOSKRNL.EXE.
I have seen on other message boards that people merely add that file to the central exceptions list.
Adding NTOSKRNL.EXE to the exceptions list sounds like a very bad idea, considering that just about any malware could call the kernel to do its dirty work.
How does one fix this problem?
Why does this problem even exist on a 4th release of SEP 11?
