nortons protect can selectively 'protect' each drive on a system.

when turned on for a removable usb device it seems to interfere with being able to unmount the device (at least that was my experience). after turning norton off i was able to dismount usb drives i couldnt get to 'release' before.

as i need to do this about once/week i am wondering if it is possible to create a .bat file to turn off/on the protection w/o having to use the GUI. ala

nprotect /d:N

which would mean disable nprotect services on drive N

also the reverse

nprotect /E:N

to enable it.

i havent been able to find anything on command line switches for nprotect so hoping someone here has some insight.
