    Hello,

    Just a quick question.

    I installed Norton Systemworks 2003 on my pc last night. When I looked at my 'startup list' in msconfig I noticed that NPROTECT was listed and ticked twice. I know it is something to do with the Norton Protected Recycle Bin.

    Can anyone tell me is it ok to disable one of those entries or should there be two entries.

    Thanks,

    Cinders.:)

    There is two states your computer system is in during startup. One is pre-sign in and the other is after you have signed in. NProtect as with both occurrences of "Load Power Profile" if there cover both these scenarios. Leaving both checked does no harm nor does it slow down the system since windows will see the program is running and not start another occurrence.
    These line entries seen in msconfig\startup are present in two different line entries of the registry but combined in msconfig for your convenience.

    Thank you so much Dave. I thought that might be the case but just wanted to make sure.

    Regards
