Can anyone tell me why file ccsvchst.exe seems to take up to 50% or more of my laptop's CPU time and retain it for an hour or more from time to time?
Obviously, this is very annoying.
According to the file, I have version 18.104.22.168 which ships with Norton IS 2011.

Welcome to the Norton Community!! :)
It is normal for ccsvchst.exe to take up 50% or more of your CPU resources from time to time because this file is responsible for handling operations such as making sure auto updating is performed, background scans for malware, and other background tasks done by NIS 2011. All security programs will have a specific process that will do this; it is done to make sure your computer stays protected.

Merged with ongoing discussion for better exposure.
