  1. Best answer
    Get rid of Norton and download Anti-Malwarebytes. It's free, or a $25 lifetime license.
  2. Uninstall Norton, problem solved.

    In all seriousness though, what sort of "tasks" does Norton flag up during? I suppose these days even an 860 will get maxxed now and again.

    There's also a "silent mode" within Norton, I believe you can activate it by right clicking the icon in the bottom right task bar, so I'd suggest when playing games to turn silent mode on, and then when you want notifying of stuffs, turn it back on.

    Most of that CPU usage is probably coming from Norton itself. It's useless

    Malwarebytes is NOT an anti-virus.
    Good free option is Avast.

    You're right, it's not good to run by itself. I personally run Webroot and Anti-malware bytes.
