    C:\PROGRA~1\SBCSEL~1\SMARTB~1\MotiveSB.exe

    Most likely installed by the ISP "support" software, and I use the terms loosely. Never understood why an ISP needed to install this garbage.

    I've been running Norton for years and I only leave ccapp.exe, (Norton Anti-Virus) and SNDMon.exe, (automatic updates) enabled. If you update manually, then you don't even need that. NOPDB.exe is Norton's Speed Disk defragmenter. I don't use it or have it in my startup.

    Here is a great site for startups and other useful info:
    http://www.pacs-portal.co.uk/startup_index.htm

    If you follow the links on that page it will eventually lead you to this page where you will find 10,799 startup items in the database:

    Also a good site. You can get a small, easy to use program called Startup Inspector (wsInspector.exe) that will read, analyze and advise you on your startups when connected to the internet.
