symdaemon / CPU / 7.3.1

Recently experienced increasing problems with my Mac and have traced it to SYMDAEMON taking up 99% of the CPU after booting up. I have removed and reinstalled with no difference.  I have now removed Norton until I get a resolution to this as it is getting in the way of me doing my job.

The most obvious impact is on using the web browser which just won't load.

I can see this has been a problem for many years but is there a resolution or do I need to remove Norton completely?

Thanks for reading

Are you still having the high cpu issues even with 7.4 version?

I am also still having that problem. I am on 7.4 now. Even switching off Norton doesn't help. Internet gets blocked, the Mac gets very slow and the fan is running constantly. Only removing Norton solves it. Any idea as the support has no clue? Many thanks.

Bit better today.  I'll monitor and report back
