is a file related to Symantec (Norton) products that appears to be used during scheduled scans or when updating.
If you do a Google Search
, you will find this is a common complaint from Symantec users who have posted about it many times in the Norton Support forums and elsewhere. This possible solution
seemed to work for some users but it's not official and was not addressed by any Norton forum representative.
I have yet to find an official explanation of the ccSvcHst.exe high cpu usage from Norton as there seems to be various causes and solutions so they probably feel it is better to deal with the issue on a case by case basis.Michael York
is an Authorized Symantec Representative
who sometimes answers questions in this forum. He helped a member with a similar complaint in this discussion thread
. If Michael does not see this topic, you can always Contact Norton Support
