Norton 360 v.2 & Manic Hard Drive mania!
Hi, I have Norton 360 v.2 with Windows Vista sp1 (64bit) with 8gb ram/ Intel Quad processor. I've noticed every once in awhile it causes my hard drives to go completely whacko continuously spinning like it is scanning for HOURS on end preventing me to do any real work on my computer without very slow delays. In the windows task manager/processes....it shows ccSvcHst.exe *32 --Symantec Service Framework as taking up to 50% of the cpu processor...I've tried 'ending the process' but it just starts back up again.
The norton 360 window doesn't show it is scanning for virus' or anything. It is completely annoying as it prevents me from doing any work on my computer since the hard drive just constantly spins doing whatever the symantec service framework thing is doing. I'm seriously considering taking this off my computer (I've had it since version 1).
I'm not 100% sure about this and I don't know if there is really any correlation...but I sometimes notice it getting into this loop after awaking from sleep mode.....again I'm not entirely sure if they are related though.
Any help, enlightenment, suggestions?
Thank you in advance!! :)
