ccapp.exe is a process belonging to Norton AntiVirus 2003. It is responsible for the auto-protect and email checking facilities, both of which will not function correctly if this service is stopped.
I often get a notice that ccapp.exe is not responding when I shut down my computer (XP Home). I noticed on this site that ccapp.exe is an undesirable file and should be deleted. However, when I try to delete the file or when I try to terminate the file in Task Manager, I get a message saying access to the file is denied. How do I delete the file?
I see it is a shared file in the Symantec directory. This is not a Symantec file???

From the Answers That Work Task List;
Symantec’s Common Client Application for Norton AntiVirus 2003/4/5, Norton Personal Firewall 2003/4/5, and Norton Internet Security 2003/4/5. This task is, effectively, the “master” task in these products as its role is to call the different program features of the above products. For example, if Auto-Protect and E-mail Scanning are enabled, then CCAPP makes sure that those programs are running. If CCAPP is disabled, then Auto-Protect and Email Scanning will not run.
Leave well alone – this task is crucial to the proper working of your Norton 2003/4/5 security product. We recommend, however, that you do a manual LiveUpdate every so often in order to pick up software updates (and not just virus definitions updates) as this task has had a few irritating bugs in the past.
