I keep getting the following error message. What does it mean and is it serious and what action should I take?
"Symantec Script Blocking has prevented a script action that may be harmful to you. Application - mshta.exe. Source file - C:\Windows\System32\-Embedding. Object - File System Object. Method - Create TextFile"

Laymans language please. Ta
