hello all, ive just registered with this site and i hope it will be more helpful than others...

i often get a norton notification "Navw32.exe is trying to access the internet" i have no idea what this is and it appears repeatedly after setting it to block always. any explanation would be appreciated.

also, spysweeper daily informs me that cftmon.exe is trying to enter my startup list. i am unsure of whether this is associated with the known trojan(multiple scans show no infections) so some info would be great.

lastly, a database program i use at work gives me the error:
Error in Shell32.DLL
Missing Entry: ShellExec_RunDLL
i desperately need this fixed!

once again, any help with these problems would be greatly appreciated. thanks in advance

It appears you have a Trojan virus. here is a link with infomation about it.
Here is information about cftmon.exe. It too appears to be a trojan.

Navw32.exe is not necessarily a problem:

The navw32.exe process is required for Norton antivirus to function correctly. If this process is stopped Norton anti virus may not be able to detect any viruses entering your system. Consequently your computer will not be protected, so it is best to leave this process running.

navw32.exe is an application that does NOT appear to be a security risk.
The Spy Bot database currently registers navw32.exe to Symantec.


Neither is cftmon.exe

The cftmon.exe process is a component used in MsOffice to perform language related functions. It is closely tied to the 'Language Bar' present in MsOffice, so if you use the Language Bar you should leave this process running. If, on the other hand, you do not use the language bar, you should terminate this process to free up system resources.

cftmon.exe is an application that does NOT appear to be a security risk

The Spy Bot database currently registers cftmon.exe to Microsoft.


cftmon.exe is a part of the Microsoft Office suite and handles speech input for this product. This program is a non-essential process, but should not be terminated unless suspected to be causing problems.
