Simply put, AUPDATE.EXE has been using 50% of my CPU (I have a dual core, so its using an entire core). I do have Norton 360, and the process is running under SYSTEM so I cannot end it. I understand what it does, and I still would like to be able to update norton so a removal is not what I'm looking for, just need to find out what is wrong with it and fix it. Memory usage on the process is locked in at 6,044K. As far as behavioral, when my other programs attempt to use that core, AUPDATE.EXE does go down as low as 2% CPU, so it is not completely hogging. I have been running my system for 181 hours according to the Idle Process, as my HDs have a tendancy to break less often when the little mechanical arm doesn't have to jump around as often with restarts. AUPDATE.EXE has been running for 51 of that 181 hours and since then has constantly been doing using the CPU with no drop so it is not working as intended, or doing anything from what I can seen. An AUPDATE.EXE is located in the C:\Program Files\LiveUpdate folder but I have not yet searched if there might've been a different one located somewhere else.

Any help would be appreciated

Well the first thing that springs to my mind is to reinstall Norton, that's if you really want to keep it.
