Invalid Pattern error in mvagent.log file

I'm seeing the error below in the mvagent.log and I'm not sure if it's referencing a Move 4.8.1 rule or ENS 10.7.0 rule. Any help deciphering this error would be appreciated.  Thanks.

Re: Invalid Pattern error in mvagent.log file

Sometimes a mis-configured rule pattern, for example the On-Access-Scan Exclusions, could result in the errors you saw in the mvagent.log.

Thanks.  As it turns out the end user had not rebooted their system following the removal of ENS, and I had already installed the Move client.  Once they rebooted the system the error cleared up.
