I am using Norton 360 for Mac. I have Norton VPN turned off. Nevertheless, it shows up on activity monitor as consuming resources. Mostly it is low level. But frequently, it starts using a lot of energy and CPU and is listed as "not responding." I have to kill it in activity monitor. I have no need or use for Norton VPN but there seems to be no way to keep it completely off. This is occurring on multiple MacBooks that I have, all running the latest versions of Mac OS. If nobody has a solution, this will be enough to drive me to a competing product.
