Hey, on Spy bot S&D, under advanced mode, under tools, there is a startup section that shows all the processes that you run at startup. I usually have just norton anti-virus, norton firewall running at startup. When I went to view the start up list, I found something interesting.
one of the processes that is listed looks like the one that is supposed to be either my norton AV or firewall, this is what Spybot said about it in the popup window:
Current value: ccApp
Current filename: "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Symantec Shared\ccApp.exe"
Database status: Not required - virus, spyware, malware or other resource hog
Added as a result of the <a href=\"http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/trojan.obsorb.html\" target=\"_blank\">OBSORB</a> VIRUS! Note the random filename compared to the valid Norton AntiVirus entry above

Now, when I told spybot to stop loading that process at bootup, my norton anti-virus and firewall are no longer loaded into memory. Can anyone explain to me exactly what the above description means, and what I should do?
