What's going on? Norton activities have been hogging my system resources so often, I have to walk away, as WindowsXP SP3 won't even launch and load Norton Tasks or Security History (without a delay of several minutes) to tell me what it's doing. These don't seem to be waiting for idle time like they used to. I can do a hard restart and get back to work sooner than waiting for ccsvchst.exe to stop spinning my HDD and freezing my other apps and docs.
Here's the log of the weekend:

Norton Security Suite posts do in fact belong in the N 360 Forum. Norton moved them from Other Products Board to the N 360 Board on Friday April 20th, so the NSS posts belongin N360.

Sorry for the disrubtion on your thread.
You mention that you are running in Silent Mode quite a bit. Do you relieze that when you come out of Silent Mode all the background tasks that were delayed are going to run? There are some background task that will start and stop only so many times before they finally decide they must finish running and will not place the system back into normal operation until they complete. Bottom line - you may be compounding the situation by delaying the running of some tasks.
Also you mentioned XP, SP3 - are you on an older system which may be lacking in the RAM department? I used to run an XP system with 528 MB of RAM and it would really lumber along, so it could also be your system partially at fault.
I would suggest that you select a time to your liking and just leave the system idle and complete all the delayed tasks, updates etc. and see if things calm down for you.
Also you listed numerous times for LiveUpdate in your first post - my LU appears to run almost as often, but for less than 30 seconds a time usually I see no impact.
