Norton Internet Security almost 100% DISK USAGE (mostly 89% above) Win 10

HI GUYS, so i've been using norton since Win 8.1 and i have the same problem with it, which is the 100% disk usage by NIS. i had that problem on win 8.1, no solution at all, then upgrading to win 10, and the same problem still happens. i hope i can get some advice and tutorial how to fix this NIS problem. cause NIS is SLOWING DOWN my laptop. and when it reached 99% disk usage, i always Turn On Silent mode. and so far, turning the silent mode on is solving my problem, but i really want to know how to fix this without turning on the silent mode. and i don't know what NIS is been doing on the background process. i have subscribtion for 3 years, but if i always having this problem for 3 years? well maybe i'll switch to the other option. so, PLEASE NORTON. GUIDE ME. 

(*sorry for my bad english)

THANKS

You can upgrade to Norton Security for free. Also what exactly is Norton doing that it takes 100%? Do you have a full scan scheduled? A backup? You can disable background tasks. Look at your history of what Norton has been doing.

NIS will use high disk usage while scanning your system. What that figure is showing is the percentage of the disk use at a specific time a specific process program is accessing the drive. When Norton is scanning and you see high disk usage that would just indicate your scan should be running faster than if the Norton process were overshadowed by some other process.

Can you determine if you are seeing this at all times, or just when there is a scan, or other background task.

No. I only set make a schedule every sunday 12:00 PM to fully scan my pc, and also only when idle. I only scan my laptop manually. But since i found that norton always made 99% of my disk usage, after i turn on my laptop, i also open the task manager to monitoring the disk usage. But somehow. Still. NIS wont stop taking my disk usage. Maybe I'll insert some photos for more information later.

You see this when you turn on the laptop. Does it settle down after a few minutes? There are tasks that Norton completes after booting up, such as running LiveUpdate and then a quick scan.

Norton  tasks by default are set to start about 10-15 minutes after bootup. Or at idle. When you open up task manager and sort by disk usage is Norton #1? What about when you sort by CPU or memory? Open up Windows resource monitor.

Yeah. I know that. If at the beginning after turning the laptop on, i know that there are some task that my laptop need to do and also norton. For me, mostly I wait for 20 minutes or less before fully using my laptop. Then after that, I opened task manager to monitoring my disk usage. For a while it seems normal. But after that, somehow NIS reaches up the disk usage. It's just frustrating. Then i turn on the silent mode and it's gone.

Exactly. Yeah. I waited 20 minutes or less after booting. After that time, when sorting the disk usage, NIS is #1. But sometimes qualcomm reach #1 too. But almost NIS. My CPU usage is normal, around 20% max (while idle), ram usage also normal, but disk usage, 89-99%.

Waiting 20 minutes means Norton is working. NIS should be #1 cause Norton waits for the pc to be at idle for 20 minutes to start tasks. The reason for Norton tasks to wait 20 minutes is so people can do stuff immediately after logging in. Without their antivirus updating and scanning. Most antivirus update the  second you log in. Norton changed this so it is not bogging your system down the second you log in. So you waiting 20 minutes is opposite of what Norton is trying to accomplish. Disk usage would mean it is scanning. You do not need to run a full scan daly or even weekly. Full scans are off by default. Once a month is good. Do you know what Norton is doing when you notice high disk usage? If you go into settings you can see what background task are being ran or just ran. I do believe Norton itself has a resource monitor built in. Can your post a screen shot the next time it occurs. I have my background task all set to 5 minutes.

Was facing the similar issue, it may be cause of svchost.exe.

Take a look at some of these solutions:

Clear Event Viewer Logs
Download and install all available Windows updates
Scan your computer for viruses and malware
Find and Disable the service that causes the “svchost” high CPU usage problem

If your windows 10 PC is undergoing 100% disk usage, then disable search services by opening services in taskbar search , opening services manager and disable windows search service. You may also disable windows update service, but you have to enable it after few days, as disabling windows 10 update service is not recommended. Also disable superfetch and Background apps.To disable background apps just go to settings – privacy – background apps and disable background apps.

Re: Norton Internet Security almost 100% DISK USAGE (mostly 89% above) Win 10

I'm having this issue with Win 8.1 like OP.

Turn on computer (i7 4 core,8 w. H/T - 16GB RAM so no slouch)

Norton 360 IMMEDIATELY starts hogging 100% HDD.  (not after 15 minutes) - everything scheduled to run on demand ONLY.

Completely kills Steam.  Game update has downloaded but will take a year to apply at the current trickle of access Norton is giving it to the HDD.

Looking at the "Resource Manager" there are multiple N360 threads all accessing different files on my HDD - currently 52 minutes since boot and N360 has been monopolising my system for all of that time.  I haven't asked for or even AUTHORISED this scan.  How do I stop Norton from scanning whenever it feels like it without asking permission?

UPDATE

Over an hour and a half since boot. Steam still can't get access to the hdd to finish the patching.  99 (!!!) N360 threads have completely choked the HDD.  All reading different files and competing with each other for disk bandwidth.  What village idiot decided to program N360 to be such a ridiculous resource hog?  How can spawning 99 threads on an 8 core processor do anything other than completely kill the performance of anything else?  What does steam have to do to compete?  Create even MORE redundant threads so the CPU schedules more than 1% of the HDD bandwidth to it?

I have the same problem.  My disk queue hits 50 and everything is grinding to a halt.  Only by disabling the startup of Norton does my PC act normal.  (msconfig and reboot)

Running task manager I see Norton Error Reporting processes starting up.

Running task manager really doesn't show the problem.  When I run resource monitor I can see the main culprit is nsbu.exe.  I set my backups to run once a month but still nsbu.exe is beating up the disk IO.
