  1. I´ve been looking into the registry and found these 2 entries "COHMON" and "COMON" at Local Machine/Software. I don´t know what are they.

    Is there any way to know which soft these entries are related to?

    Is it from Norton internet Security?

    Google does not bring up anything for either expression. If you suspect it might be from Norton, look in your program files and the folder in there for Norton and see if anything with those names or close to those names is in there. Also see if you can tell a date for those registry keys and see if they match the date on your Norton having been installed. Best to you...

    I don't know what it is, but you can find out if its necessary by running a registry cleaner. something like Abexo Free Registry Cleaner would do

    scanning thru the registry, it appears that these are items which enable multiple users
    on the same machine to use the installed software; ie -- things in common across users.

    Run a HijackThis and see if they appear.
