I was wondering if anyone was aware that Norton Int Security 2010 also includes a defragger that runs in the background? My feeling is that it goes beyond the job description of the product. What do you guys think?

um does this really belong in the dog pound?

Considering that NIS 2010 is pretty damn lightweight (especially by Norton standards) and it the defragger only runs after several minutes of the system being idle i'm not really sure why a company adding a feature to a product is a bad thing, especially since you can turn it off if you really have a problem with it. If NIS wants to defrag my system while it scans im certainly not going to complain about it.

This folder is not just for bad things.

Here is the folder description:
