What is ccap.exe? Should I remove it?

ccap.exe is genuine and legitimate file. This file is included to several Symantec products, such as Norton Antivirus, Norton Personal Firewall, etc. This file is not an essential component of Windows and is added to your system with the installation of some other software. If you installed any product developed by Symantec company, you should not stop or remove this executable file. If you uninstalled the program, which runs the ccap.exe file, you may leave some invalid registry entries that cause registry errors. It may also cause your system to work more slowly.


In some cases viruses, trojans, malwares and other threats may be disguised as a legitimate processes within Windows operations. If you do not have any Symantec products installed on your system and you are seeing ccap.exe process in your Task Manager, don't waste the time and scan your system with reliable security program. There is also another way how you can check if this process is real of fake. Open Windows Task Manager and try clicking “end process” on the ccap.exe file. If it says, “process cannot be terminated” it is most likely that this file is legitimate. If ccap.exe closes, there is a high possibility that your computer is affected by malware RegCure Pro.
