I disabled ghostray.exe in msconfig too.  So long ago that I can't remember why. It's not necessary. I don't like tray icons and it uses about 10 MB RAM.

You say: I disabled and it's not necessary : You mean it is not necessary to disable or it is not necessary in start-up?
Do you still use Ghost to make sheduled backups?

The tray icon is not necessary. It's just there as a "faster" way of starting the Ghost GUI than using the All Program menu. I do daily scheduled images. Removing the icon makes no difference to how Ghost runs.

There have been reports of ghostray.exe causing high CPU usage but I didn't have that problem.

Brian, when using Ghost 10 (i.e., purchased as an individual product and not part of Norton Save & Restore or Norton SystemWorks) in the absence of any other installed Symantec product, is there also a Norton Protection Center icon in the System Tray?  In other words, does the Ghost 10 product add a Ghost icon as well as a Norton Protection Center icon to the System Tray?

Also, does the removal of the Ghost 10 icon in the System Tray have any impact on the running of automatically scheduled backups?  (I thought its presence was necessary to enable the scheduling feature, but I may be mistaken.)

Pleonasm, there is only a Ghost icon.

I disabled the icon in msconfig when Ghost 10 was first installed and there are no problems with scheduled backups.

It's been ages since I looked at NSR. Does it have two icons?

Brian, thanks for the clarification.

To answer your question, yes:  Norton Save & Restore adds its own icon to the System Tray as well as the Norton Protection Center icon (see this thread).
