Again! McAfee Security Centre warns that a program is seeking to access a 'guarded file', new ones almost daily! Latest 'shellmon exe', four entries found in Search. Other: 'sychost'.
How do I tell if any are dangerous? Most seek to access AOL. Blocking or allowing seems to make no difference. What's the safest thing to do?

If blocking causes no problems, then I would block.
