I have 2 programs running in the background, BOTH are associated with Norton Firewall. I need to know if these progams NEED to be running? They are: iamapp and nisserv. When I unselect them, they just appear again AND they are checked marked. Can't see the need to have an icon in the system tray and also an icon that pops out from the side when my pc gets "hit" ? Thanks Dave.

iamapp:

AtGuard personal firewall engine. As Atguard was bought by Symantec some time ago, it's now the Norton Personal Firewall executable as well.


nisserv:

From Norton Internet Security 2002. Required if you use this for your personal firewall.


Both should be left running. You can check for startups at this site:

That's strange...I don't own Norton Internet Security? Dave.

Norton Internet Security comprises Norton Firewall, so the files are the same.

And yes, you need to have both of them running or your firewall won't work.
About the warnings, these can simply be disabled.

I'm not running NPF right now, but you can disable the Alert Tracker for a start, and there's more.
Just check the options.

THANKS Guy: Special thanks to buckaroo :) That is the best list of programs I've seen. You can bet I saved that one. Dave
