Received Windows Notification at boot: message: Win 7 Ntoskrml.exe was changed

I just started my Windows 7 pc up and received this notification: Win 7 Ntoskrml.exe was changed and it asked me if I should allow the file internet access. I responded YES, but now I'm wondering what is happening.

I run Symantec Endopoint and Malwarebytes so I assume this is one of the patches Microsoft released today.

Has any one else see this? I'm running a full scan of Malwarebytes and Endpoint right now. Nothing has shown up yet.

See the answer at the link below. If you have a ERD disk so you can access the drive and change the boot.ini file, you should be fine. The error is related to a boot.ini filce change or corruption.

"Ntoskrml.exe"

Assuming this is a typo, and should read NTOSKrnl.exe. I would boot to Safe Mode, and run a full scan with MalwareBytes.....

Sep wont find alot related to MALware, but isnt too bad against viruses.....

Did you get the notice from the tray, in the little pop up box, that states "Your computer was updated etc..."
