    The reason Im showing/asking is I had a program try to start and was alerted by Zone Alarm. I denied it & have several things now I do not understand in the program list but remains unchecked.


    thanks,
    Savvy :)

    Hiya

    *StateMgr: WinME. Windows default for System Restore. Do NOT disable

    AVG_CC: AVG anti-virus control center. Loads a System Tray icon that let's you access the antivirus program. Also enables the E-mail pluggin

    Avgserv9.exe: Background monitoring program for AVG anti-virus. Required if that is your anti-virus program


    eScorcher: ??

    GetRight - Tray Icon: GetRight from Headlight Software - download manager for resuming downloads and choosing multiple download lacations. The freeware version is Spyware.The registered version isn't if you don't install the Aureate/Radiate software. Available via Start -> Programs - not required

    ICSMGR: Monitors DNS and DHCP requests for ICS (Internet Connection Sharing). Needed if youÂ’re sharing the internet on various computers

    LoadPowerProfile: Power management specifics such as monitor shut-off, system standby, etc.

    MiniLog: If you don't have ZoneAlarm Pro running you don't need this

    ScanRegistry: keep

    SchedulingAgent: Microsoft Scheduling Agent displayed as a box with a stopwatch in the System Tray - only needed if you have regular scheduled disk defragmenting, ScanDisk, etc. Recommend you run these at regular intervals anyway so not needed as they can interrupt other programs

    SSDPSRV: WinME. For future Plug and Play devices only. Provides Simple Service Discovery Protocol (SSDP) and General Event Notification Architecture (GENA) services for Universal Plug and Play functionality. You can uninstall it by going to Add Remove programs in Control Panel -> Windows Setup -> Communications. Starts up a web server on port 5000

    supporter5: MIRC?

    SystemTray: keep

    TrueVector: keep

    WebInstall2: http://www.lindersoftware.com/liveupd.htm

    ZONEALARM:

    ZTgServerSwitch: Sets active servers on a Sony 2000me Vaio desktop PC?

    Now, does it say what is trying to get out and to where? There are a few that I'm not certain about, but I gave a link to a page for one. Just look for that word in there.

    Savvy,

    Haven't you checked this famous site that we're all mentioning so frequently for them?
    Check it out!. It explains most of them: http://www.pacs-portal.co.uk/startup_pages/startup_full.htm

    I'm not going to stop at each one, for you can certainly look them up for yourself, but do this:

    Go to Start/Run and uncheck everything, exept for the following items:


    *StateMgr
    AVG_CC
    Avgserv9.exe
    ICSMGR
    LoadPowerProfile (2x)
    MiniLog
    ScanRegistry
    SchedulingAgent
    SystemTray
    TrueVector
    ZONEALARM
    ZTgServerSwitch

    Click OK, close Msconfig, and reboot.

    You can start up GetRight manually, if you wish.
    What Webinstall is I don't have the foggiest, but lets just uncheck it, for the h*ll of it... :D

    Any questions? Any time!

    Good luck,
