    Has anyone seen the services:

    Intel Alert Handler
    Intel File Transfer

    And anyone know why they are set to automatic, yet don't start? I believe they come from a Symantec Anti Virus instalation, but I still don't know why they don't and can't start (even if you try manually).

    Any ideas folks?

    Cheers,
    Dan

    Some services only start when needed and no amount of coaxing will make them start at any other time

    I am aware of that - but I wondered what the jobs of those particular services was, and whould they be started or are they actually only started when called upon

    All I could find about these services is here: http://www.skybuilders.com/users/jesse/docs/securityPolicy.html#III

    #'s 23,24,25 seem to depend on #26,and #26 supports #'s 23,24,25 which brings us back to #26....seems like a closed loop

    dog chasing it's tail...?

    Sorry,it's not much help but,I am as confused as you.Maybe you should contact Symantec and see if they can give you some more detailed info
