Access queried by McAfee

  polonius 16:00 01 Apr 2004

Newly installed McAfee Security Centre warns . . . is seeking access to 'a protected file', viz C:\PROGRAM FILES\AOL 8.0\IDB\APPS.INFO
Seeking access is Sychost.exe, which is 'Generic Host Process for Win 32 Services'.
I've been denying this access but is it likely to be harmful in any way? Any info/advice gratefully received by this confused person!

I have Norton Internet Security 2004 and this has been warning me several times about the same attempt. Oddly it reports it as 'low risk' and recommends me to permit the attempt. However I have decided to play safe and let NIS block it every time.
