It's driving me and my PC nuts.


My mouse pointer is on constant load status (or flickering between load and not), found the problem to be IDVault.exe. I am unable to end the process, and it just keeps jumping around in my Task Manager window going from some, to none, to a ton of memory usage then will disappear completely. So it is constantly reloading?


I've tried rebooting 5 or 6 times. It's just a nuisance, any way to stop it?

Re: IDVault.exe

Use Add/Remove Programs to uninstall Constant Guard Protection Suite. That should remove IDVault. but will leave Norton installed.

After uninstalling, check Add/Remove Programs for GuardedID,. If present, remove  that also.


Reboot after removing.
