I have been having some trouble lately with Norton, it takes way too much time starting windows. I notice on the msconfig that there are a few different apps its running. One, of which is oscheck.exe and the other is Symantec PIF AlertEng, can I disable these apps. Of course it needs to run ccapp on startup but are these other apps necessary. From what I can tell oscheck is checking my operating system, but is it totally necessary on startup. I have heard it will speed up the start up time. Any ideas would be a great help.
^^^^I agree with edklite, ditch Norton as soon as possible. Its just a resource hog..... I use AVG anti-virus ...the FREE EDITION and have never had any virus related problems it could not easily fix 8)
