|I believe it is a virus. I was on Symantec's website trying to manually update my virus definitions. I had the task manger up, when LuCallbackProxy .exe appeared, the download ceased saying it was completed. I tried to open downloaded file and error message came up saying it was corrupted or incomplete. Tuesday|

|I accidentally opened my task manager and when I did, I seen alot more tasks running than usual. So I looked throug hte list and found this LuCallbackProxy.exe in the list at least 7 times. When I tried to "end process" on one of them, it told me that access was denied and would not let me end it. So I decided to Google it and see what it was, which is what brought me here. As soon as i clicked on the link to come here, every single one of them suddenly stopped. Shirley Urbanec|

|Talk about slowing my system...Not even sure if Nortons worth it|
|it eats resources and slows my pc|
|It matters little if it is Norton or not.... the program eats up huge amounts of computer resources, making it malware at best and a trojan at worse. Norton needs to clean up this resource hog now... or people need to stop buying their products. usar4me|
