This is not good especially when your C: drive is SSD.

Today it is more than 5GB. What this process is doing when PC is doing nothing?

When did you last restart your computer? Those numbers might be cumulative since your last restart.

Maybe what you are seeing is similar to another user here.    https://community.norton.com/en/forums/norton-360-steadily-destroying-my...

As was suggested for that user, try reinstalling your Norton. Download and run the Norton Removal and Reinstall tool from   www.norton.com/nrnr and use the Advanced Options > Remove only. After the uninstall, look for and delete any leftover Norton folders, especially for the file that is noted in this other thread.

..., maybe I should stop using Norton and switch to a different product.

All responses are so far useless.

Did you try a reinstall of your product, with the clearing of Norton folders as I suggested above?
