Even if all Norton Antivirus features and updates are turned off, ccsvhst.exe seems to be using cpu whenever e-mail is checked or a program is opened.
   
Even if you kill the process, it restarts. Constantlt eating up memory and CPU usage.

Anything that steals from me is dangerous. 2 copies stealing time on my machine. Often freezes for an hour or more. Crashes FF. Should be banned. Would remove/replace it, but if I do Comcast will complain or shut me out.
  Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr   (further information)
I know everbody is saying it is part of NAV but I still don't feel safe. It is constantly using between 8-99% of my CPU (on and off on an I7!) When it is not, a couple other programs are. I think it is malware, or somehow linked to malware.
