norton ghost file
Installed by Symantic Ghost Corporate Edition
This is part of Symantec's Ghost software. It is actually a product of Sybase, and it has to do with running the server that manages the database the ghost information is stored in. It is also used in Powerbuilder 8.
It is in the bin directory of my Symantec Ghost 8.0 CE. It was hogging over 70% of my CPU resources. It is installed to start automatically.

It is a part of Symantec Ghost 7.5 Corporate Edition. When you install the product on the server is will install & start those services. If you don't use Ghost you may stop & disable the Symantec Ghost services & restart them when needed.

Best practices for resolving rteng7 issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with rteng7. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.

To help you analyze the rteng7.exe process on your computer, the following programs have proven to be helpful: Security Task Manager displays all running Windows tasks, including embedded hidden processes, such as keyboard and browser monitoring or Autostart entries.
