A Temporary SYMQUALD fix to get around the cpu usage
This solution requires some technical confidence on your part. If the keyboard is not your intimate friend, you probably shouldn't use this.
1 learn how to get FINDER to reveal hidden files
2 Now, scroll down thru the Symantec folder under APPLICATIONS in the ~/LIBRARY system folder and find the file for SYMQUALD. This will be identified as a unix file.
3. Using Get Info, add an X to the end of SYMQUALD file name and press return.(symqualdx, now)
4. Now hide the previously hidden files.
All should be well. This works for you if you have already learned that symquald is reputed to report errors, and you don't care about that at this point. Note that in Advanced in Norton security, you MUST go to the tool box for error tracking before turning off the slider button for that, otherwise the slider button reverts to on.
All the info you need, such as how to reveal hidden files you can find by googling. It;s late here and I'm tired of this darned issue. This is a solution without consequence, but you mac will work fine, mine is for me now. Just standing by for a Norton solution now, here.
