Antonio Pulido Yes part of NiS or NAV
Ron O It caused a found new hardware and Windows install new hardware to appear on reboot. It appeared after I downloaded Symantec /Norton antivirus. Then found that It used 10 to 15 % of my processor. When I uninstalled the Symantec product, I had to spend a couple of hours locating all the remaining files and manually remove them. Still coulden't get the pest out. Finally went to My Computer/Properties/Device Manager and found it highlighted in yellow and attached to MCSTRM, a RealPlayer scheduler or some such. I right clicked it and deleted it and then right clicked MSTRM and disabled that.
Ron O Following up on my previous posting. What I did stopped the problem and removed the cursed thing. At this point I truelu think Norton AntiVirus is a virus unto itself. My advice. Get AVG.
Marc It is listed by Symantec as one of their low level drivers  See also: Link
Ron It comes up on found new hardware on boot.
Linda Hi, Everytime I start my pc, it keeps telling me theres new hardware detected and if I would like to install the new hardware symlcbrd. There is no Symantic (Norton AV) on this pc but there was up until last week. It might be a left over component but I don't understand the new hardware message so now I am going to give the pc a good clean-up. If it is still there giving the same message after I have cleaned I remove it! There are two more messages about hardware, about a printer thats not there and a file called tmfilter which I think has to do with Trend Micro AV that is running now(I hope)

Doron Definitely a Symantec file. It is a NAV driver, don't erase it.  See also: Link
Gorrit Same experience as Ron had, plus that it made my boot excruciatingly slow and slows down the processor after that. Norton Antivirus 2002 never gave any trouble but this is a pest. I am going to throw away my 45 euro Norton rubbish and get myself a McAfee.
Part of Norton AntiVirus
gimp necessary for norton anti vir but doesn't uninstall when uninstalling norton
scout was in C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers
A pain when left behind by removing Norton as it keeps loading some basic part of Norton Internet Worm protection if your system had it.
