When updating software this morning, we got a message that had a yellow banner instead of blue & it read "Do you want to allow this app from an unknown publisher to make changes to your device?" This is not the usual message which names Intuit as the publisher. Am I compromised?
After choosing the no response, message was "An error has occurred attempting to launch ProSeries Update. Error Code 5 (Access Denied)
I got a similar "dire warning" from my Norton 360 - it appears that ProSeries didn't add the certificate or other security identifier that tells the anti-virus the update is okay.
My anti-virus refused to allow the 990 update entirely, but I don't need that right now.
There isn't anything you need to do - this is a ProSeries issue. The update is supposed to contain a certificate to tell the anti-virus that everything is a-okay. If you launched the update from within your ProSeries program, you should be confident that it is okay.
Anything but that!! The last time we called for support we were put on hold. Hung in there for an hour & gave up!! They had the call back number but never used it. I find calling support is a worthless waste of time. It's been particularly bad over the last couple of years.
