Done . After restart new run of NPE didn't find any threat .
The promising IObit link you suggested , while speaking of modified versions of a legitimate software turned to a virus , in fact simply offer the download of on old version of Advanced System Care 4 ( that I allready have ) .
Anyway I don't think the 'program' could be a startup defender activity of Advance System Care because I have noticed it and behaves differently : Declaring the name 'IOBit -something' , never interphering in NIS operation ( at least in visible way ) .
Here ( Italy ) it's very ( very ) late ... I'll stop the research for the moment and go to bed .
Thank You very much for the moment for the precious help !

Two things, You have leftovers of System Care 4 as well as having System Care 5, let alone the fact I don't like System Care and Norton together.
Secondly if you (or others) look right at the bottom of the list in your screenshot,
Below Acrobat Reader.......... you can just see the IObit Malware Fighter IObit listing.
Malware Figher has a Startup Guard, File Guard and Process Guard running in the background
Remove IObit from running Realtime, if not remove completely.

Yes Quads you are right , I've got a little mess of 'optimizers' softwares running together ( I've got also Toolwiz for that ...! ).
The matter is that I haven't decided between AES 4 PRO and AES 5 FREE yet !
On the question of 'IObit malware fighter' , as I wrote I recognize its work , it's different ( although analogous ) from that in exam :
the messages are different ( heading ' IObit .....' name not 'Startup Defender ' ) the occasions are different ( appropriate and never interphering with NIS operations for IObit ONLY POINTED , at the moment , TO STOP NIS UPDATES for 'Startup Defender' ) clearly traceable to a running program the first not - at the moment - the second .
Anyway I can certainly follow your advice but the problem is that it seems to me that the program' s apparitions are getting progressively less frequent ( could it read theese posts ? ) and so can be hard evaluate the effects.

As to NPE struggling with the 2 command entries with Firefox in trying to fix and "has tried to stop NPE".
Malware Fighter has a Browser Guard, which could be fighting NPE with changing those entries.
Also Malware Fighter has a Network Guard which could also be intefering with the Norton Networking and updates.

Maybe , but IObit don't message me on NIS nor NPE operation ( never ) as the other thing do ( did ? , are some 24 hours I haven't seen it ....I'm waiting it with 'snipping tool ' open to snapshot it ! ) . The two entries of NPE refers to two slightly different problems of Firefox ( the second I forgot to documentate ) .

The end ( ? ) of the question .
On the 19-th of this month I treasured Quads's warnings and disintalled all : Advanced System Care 4 free & 5PRO , Tolwiz and IObit malware defender . Since then I no longer had the messages in question from ' Startup Defender ' .
Thanks frenmm .
