First time using the forum and would appreciate any help you can give.

Kids using computer last night and today all physical memory is being eaten up by SPBBCSvc.exe and CCEVTMGR.exe?

Both those files are associated with Symantec/Norton products. Perhaps you should uninstall and reinstall any such products you have on your computer. To uninstall these products use the Norton Removal Tool.

Although Norton is as good as any other well known anti-virus program, it is known to be a resource hog that can slow down your system. NAV requires numerous services and running processes that consume a lot of system resources and often results in complaints of high CPU usage.

spbbcsvc.exe is a core component of Symantec Internet Security that helps to prevent unauthorised access to your computer from the internet. ccevtmgr.exe is used by Norton antivirus to run scheduled updates of virus definitions and scheduled system scans. The periods of high CPU usage are probably related to this.
