NPROTECT appears 2'ce in my msconfig startup tab

Discussion in 'Computer Information' started by Rostyslaw J. Lewyckyj, May 20, 2006.

  1. Win98se, System works 2002.
    Many places advise that one should remove non essential items
    from the MSCONFIG startup.
    Well inspecting my MSCONFIG wizard startup tab I have noticed
    NPROTECT c:\Program Files\NortonSystemWorks\NortonUtilities\nprotect.exe
    appears twice in the list of things to be started.
    First immediately after starting the NAV AGENT as the 10th & 11th in the
    startup list and then among starting up other SystemWorks items:
    Script blocking, CSINJECT.EXE, NPROTECT, SymTray-NortonSystemWorks
    items 21 - 24. (I apologize that I couldn't find a file where they
    are all listed, so that I could cut and paste).
    So my question is whether I can/should delete (uncheck) one of these
    seemingly redundant startups of nprotect.exe.

    That happens with other programs as well. Good thing is that it's just
    cosmetic as the file doesnt load twice, of course. Of course you can
    uncheck it, that's the exact pupose of what msconfig was desinged for.
    As one can always go back an redo to original if a problem.
