I'm not even sure what that is, but I suspect it's some software included on the CD that comes with a Linksys SOHO Router. If it is, you can uninstall it. I've worked with, and used, quite a few Linksys router's and never once installed their software. It isn't necessary.

As far as I know, Linksys Advisor is a piece of software, that runs as a process and minimizes to the systray.
It monitors your network and shows the status of the connected devices.

I removed the linksys advisor as per Curt R. For some reason, that was the problem, I can't say why. If any other problems arise, I might have to reinstall, but so far so good. Hope that helps.

Thanks for your response.

As mentioned above, it's not necessary for network functionality.
It's only for monitoring the network and the connected devices like computer, laptops, printers a.s.o.

I suspect Paul is correct, that it runs in the background. Honestly, I was thinking the same thing and I could have told you to prevent it from running using msconfig that's built into XP, or better yet, my favorite program called "Startup Control". Both of which allow you to control what does, and doesn't start on bootup. However, that software is really not necessary and that's why I recommended just killing it.

I'm glad I was able to help.

Happy computing.
