360 v3 very slow start up and ccSvcHst hogs CPU
I know there are a lot of posts on slow startup but I also have a problem with ccSvcHst using 90% of the CPU doing nothing (well nothing visible to a user anyway) for between 10 and 30 minutes after 360 has started. There were some posts on this for V2 but I couldn't find any for V3.
It seems to eventually settle down and the PC becomes useable - but it repeats on every re-start.
My problems seemed to start after I enabled the online backup (with the icon overlays) - I have now disabled all of this as this is obviously the source of loads of problems.
But the slow starts and ccSvcHst problems remain... does anyone have any ideas ? Is a re-install of 360 necessary ?
I think NIS2009 may have lulled me into a false belief that Norton products were better now - and I'm regretting upgrading to 360.
System is XP SP3 (fully up to date with patches etc), I also run Firefox 3.5.2 and PC Tools Spyware Doctor.
