    monwow: background prg on my system

    monwow : background prg on my system

    Do any of you guys have "monwow" running as a background program on your systems?

    I try to keep background programs to a minimum to save on RAM, so i remove programs from the run and runonce services of windows. but there is this one program (listed as monwow on the close program dialog box) whose launch origin i fail to pin-point.

    Could this be spyware attatched to a legitimate program or a valid windows program?

    How can i find out how it starts-up?

    Thanks..

    Are you running Norton Cleansweep?



    Part of Norton CleanSweep. This program monitors the installation of new software on your PC without it running in the background Smart Sweep is "toothless" and cannot be used.

    Recommendation :
    If you actively use Norton CleanSweep on your PC, you will need to leave this process alone. Only disable it if you are troubleshooting conflicts between CleanSweep and other software (disable it by turning "off" Smart Sweep in the configuration of CleanSweep, and then rebooting).
