This is part of your Norton Antivirus... runs when your internet explorer does maddcow
Norton Internet Security ? JQ

Part of Norton AV. Personally I would regard Internet Exploder + Outlook Exmess as the two big weaknesses on any Windows system. Don't like viruses or spyware, but can't afford a Mac? Then get rid of all shortcuts to IE or OE, [you can't even uninstall them in XP, which should tell you a lot!!],and get yourself a copy of Mozilla Firefox + Mozilla Thunderbird. IE + OE are so deeply bundled with the Windows main OS that any penetration goes instantly to the very core of the system.  See also: Link

Dudes... IT comes with Norton Antivirus! Do u think that they will make a virus in an antivirus software? Symantec is trusted for its components so its not a virus or worm! E-Info
Keep it you want it to work properly....
Part of Norton SystemWorks - Live Update - Norton spends a lot of time plugging holes in Microsoft OS and Browser. This program, while needed, has potential to be used against you ... not ust for subscription validation. Be sure you have the 'real' version from Symantec and not malware. Richard Creighton
It hosed my explorer.exe (i.e. the Hour-Glass) when I right-clicked any file folder or the "Start" tool bar. I quaranteed the file any my problem disappeared. This file is from Norton Systemworks 2003 and it really hoses things up. Tecra
I have never run any symatic product on my computer and never would, there all crap yet this file snuck on my computer... I hope that company goes bankrupt soon, use Avast for Virus Scanning  See also: Link Clifford
I could not run LiveUpdate until I removed a file by this name from c:/windows/system (in safe mode) The version info did not identify symantec as the creator!
malware copies its name and replaces the norton anti virus file with a trojan of the same name. this is a potentially very dangerous trojan. Greg
Comes with Norton Internet Security, only be weary if it is installed to System or System32 folder Alex Talmage
Well it appears on my computer even though we don't have Norton AntiVirus or Internet Security Mike
I had my Norton Antivirus program sacked by a virus & a trojan, I was forced to remove my Norton Antivirus program, if the file "navshext.dl" I suggest that you remove that file with security task manager, my PC works way better now :D Wim
says "At Risk" when i scan with norton... (?!?) Howdy
Yes it can come with Norton Systemworks. However I've also seen other viri/spyware masquerade as that file as well Zac

Comes with Norton Antivirus Vampire Heart

It's related to Norton AV Buggy Woogy
I had Norton Antivirus on my computer but found it caused my computer to slow and my mouse to freeze. It completes with you for CPU time. So I decided to uninstall it but didn't use the original software to do that. The software I used left a lot of components on my computer and these caused many errors and freezeups. If anyone uninstalls Norton, I suggest they use the uninstall on the original uninstall disk. Bob Mckinnon
It is part of Norton anti-virus and is also considered adware. Also, A lot of people tend to run to firefox/moxilla. I disagree. While it may be safer in terms of getting attacked it doesn't open everything either. So what then?? Don't mask the problem. FIX IT. Good protecion prevents these problems and keeps your IE working fine. Ty
it is a copy, it belongs to come other company not of norton, sumthing BBSGDN or sumthing when removed. M
