    Appsvc32.exe consuming 50% of system resource

    Hi,
    Sometime my computer becomes extremely slow. In task manager I had noticed a service called AppSvc32.exe. It is consuming 50% of the processor usage. This makes other programs to works extremely slow. I had run a full system scan by Norton Antivirus and found some detection. Norton cleaned those file but still after that the file in the task manager appear. What is service related to. Any idea.

    It is a norton file. This file is related as the core application service for the Symantec Security products. Normally it is an automated service. It is included in the Antivirus system and installed in your system to protect your computer from virus, trojans, unwanted incoming and other harmful threats. The file is located in Program file\common files\symantec shared\appcore. It is not a threat a critical system components.

    It is a Norton File. You can disable the service if do not want. Normally it is a core system file and cannot be killed or deleted. But it can be disabled. Try this. Go to Norton Internet Security and select NAV settings. Then go to options and click on preferences. Now remove the tick from scan active programs and start up files. Then also remove the tick from run a scan whenever protection updates have been received. Click ok and restart your system.
