Thanks for the input on the program. Before I disable, There are a few other wrinkles, which I did not appreciate on the orig. posting. I was really frustrated last week, and have a better handle on my machine now. I can isolate that the problem started with the installation of the new Mcafee; yes Adaware is off, which was its own problem. Mcafee is successfully installed, but when I Shut Down, or restart, two programs will not end/respond.
SMax4PNP and RNotificationServicePollerWnd
I click end now for each, and I can shut down. Other than that the machine seems fine. But since I built it last December, It has been flawless, lucky me. I did the Mcafee install two weeks ago, had the problem above, then I went through a few restore points, which solved the problem, but it negated the AV upgrade(maybe Mcaffee was a bad choice). Adaware came back, I manually deleted it, and put Mcaffee back on. Of course the SMax and RNotif are back. Its a pain to see it come up every time I see it. Icould live with it, buI know that something is not right. I presume I could disable RNotif as well, if it isnt critical. Could Mcafee have taken over thaose programs? maybe I could get it to lay off?
