GoogleToolbarNotifier disables Nortons AntiSpam feature on OutlookExpress Toolbar.

I disabled it a long time ago, but have yet to find a way to completely REMOVE itís entry in the plug-ins section.

Was Located in the Program File folder (which was the right place for it to be). The only problem I saw with it, beside eating up my resources, was the fact that I was unable to stop that process in Task Manager. Was telling me that I didn't have the rights necessary even when I was logged in as Admin. When Google installs stuff on your computer and restrains your right to it, then you know there's something fishy in it!

It keeps rejuvenating other google processes I end. Maybe it's not dangerous in its true form, but on my computer it's definitely connected to my google redirect virus. Still looking for a heal. :(
