|I know it was still on my computer@ C:\ProgramFiles\CommonFiles\Symantecshared\CCPD-LC with three other dll files symlcnet, symlcrst, & symlctnk. After I removed Symantec and ran their removal tool fro their site.

|It's Norton System Works which corrupts your Windows, Norton and corrodes your whole system Tad Emery|
|Essential process for checking your license for Norton products, so they can be updated Zidamon|
|It is currently consuming over 5000 system handles on my machine, which is outrageous. System handle shortages can cause all kinds of problems. Consider this process dangerous if system stability is important to you. David|
|It gets a bit dodgy when you try to delete it, you cannot remove it like a normal file so google ways to delete it Matt|

|It is Norton related and shouldnt be there none|
|it is a registry key that is installed when installing norton, and not uninstalled when you have unistalled norton. it doesnt take up any of my memory but i am suspicious considering i no longer have norton, and that this registry key is still classed as active, well it could be a host for other programmes ..... steph|
|I want anything Symantic off my computer. Norton is a resource hog and I can't delete symlcsvc.exe even after Norton Anti-Virus has been removed Eric|
|Comes also with Norton Ghost 10 Alfred|
|don't use norton and you most likely won't get this problem. Uninstalling norton not effective means of solving issue. norton uninstall tool doesn't work. i rated it important if you have norton installed but really it's not if you use something else. stoo|
|Norton Symantec tool|
|The File Is a left over extension of the use of notrton virus protection. After realizing the process is still in use i couldn't delete, So i opend up task manager and removed the task called symlcsv.exe which will allow you access to go into the file directory. C/program files/common files/ symantec shared. There just delete the folder. BUT ONLY DO THIS IF YOU DONT USE NORTON ANTIVIRUS. YOU NEED THIS IF YOU DO. That all i know is how to delete it. Josh|

|I haven't used Norton in years and recently have been trying to clear all unnecessary files. I was looking at my install/uninstall programs list and saw Symantec listed with a bunch of odd numbers and letters. I clicked to uninstall... As I did this my McAfee service popped up and said it stopped and blocked 2 trojans by the name of Artemis! (etc.)... Listed the file name as SymLCSVC.exe and a process in the Windows system as MsiExec.exe Moody|
|That even if u stop the process running, so u are able to delete it, kaspersky will inform u that it is still installed, I also know its not a trojen. I'd rather not use my computer than be forced to use a specific company, theres really no need for it, if the products are so good. Still, I have the problem. Mazi Nu|
|It's part of Norton, an anti-virus which was suppose to protect my computer. It made my games incapable of connecting online and when I uninstalled Norton, it took with it a lot of my programs. They completely vanished. Frosty|
|I do not use Symantec. I suppose I must have missed some little box you have to uncheck to avoid them foisting their worthless junk onto my computer, while loading some other software. But it eats all my file handles and drags my box to a standstill. Most annoying. Thomas|
