Hi rylee...Welcome to G2G!

There are a couple things we can try to stop this.

Click Start then Run and type msconfig into the run box...click "Ok". Under the "Startup" tab, look in the list for an entry relating to the Norton Zip Recovery and uncheck the check box next to it. Click "Apply" then "Ok" to exit the Configuration window.

Restart your machine and see if the NZR still runs. (Note: upon restart, you will get a Selective Startup window...this is normal. Put a check the box in the lower left corner of the window and it will not return.)

Let us know if this helps...
