Check to see if the file exists under c:\program files\norton utilities\  This is the program file for System doctor.  Reinstall NU if it's missing.

depends if you want it to run or not. if you want the file to run.. follow the about advice..

if you don't want to file to run.. start regedit from the start run command and then after that do a find for runonce.. look around the keys there for the link to your program and delete it..

alternatively.. it could be in your startup program group..
