Try this to get an idea of what is gong on:
These are OS sevices; Norton adds a number of others, many of which
are run at boot.  Check other areas of the site for fuller
explanations / suggestions.

Will be installing NPF and NAV (part of SystemWorks install) later
this week.  I'm new to these products on XP, so I'll return / post
here if anything relevant shows up.  Switched to Linux before XP and
I'm a bit behind on Win setups these days -- Linux is sooooo superior
for network use.  But I do keep Win on disk for non-network use.

Curious, you did not say why you uninstalled / re-installed NPF.  If
not done properly, it can create problems.  I'm having a hell of a
time uninstalling NAV2003 before proceeding with NSW install.  Be sure
to comb the Symantec KB for articles -- it's amazing how many things
can get out of whack with these Norton progs!
