What is ccsvchst.exe Error and How to Fix It?

The ccsvchst.exe is an executable file, which is part of Symantec Service Framework from Symantec Corporation. This executable file becomes a part of your computer system when you get Norton products installed like Symantec Security Technologies and Symantec Event Manager.

The file is contained in a subfolder in the “C:\Program Files\Common Files” folder. It is common to find a ccsvchst error in your system.

The ccsvchst.exe error

On going through the Internet, I found that one of the most known errors is the ccsvchst.exe application error. The ccsvchst.exe application error actually occurs during the shutdown of the system and the system startup. Sometimes this file takes up a lot of CPU usage and I experienced this while working on the computer.

Another cause for the ccsvchst error is the presence of a bug in the Norton products, such as Norton 2007. In the latest Norton version, there are options for debugging the error. To get Norton products free from the bug, you have to run the Live Update utility. Doing this, I was able to install the latest patches for my Norton product and get rid of the error.

In case, your Norton product is already updated. You can get it uninstalled by using the Windows tool “Add or Remove Programs”. The steps you need to follow are:

  1. Go to Start and select Control Panel
  2. Hit the Performance and Maintenance link and then go on to select Add or Remove Programs
  3. Choose your Norton product from the Currently Installed Programs list and then go for the Remove option
  4. Continue the process for all the Norton products and then restart your computer

After running the Remove option, I got a RegCure scan done, as this ensured that there are no leftover entries in the registry. If there are, remove them to have complete un-installation. Reinstall your Norton product after you are done with all these actions.

If there is no Norton product installed on your computer and you are still experiencing a ccsvchst error in your system, then you can blame it on the PC being infected with spyware. Fix it with an appropriate anti spyware program, such XoftSpySE.
