What is ccSvcHst.exe? Should I remove it?

by Jake Doevan - -

ccSvcHst.exe file is a legitimate file, which is added to one's system when user installs a product developed by Symantec corporation (Norton Antivirus, Norton Firewall, etc.). However, security experts also categorize this file as non-essential system process, so it can be terminated if user decides to do that. ccSvcHst.exe is located in C:\Program Files directory and it takes about 130,250 bytes of disk space. When this file is executed, it sends data via LAN or another Internet connection. ccSvcHst.exe is not a Windows core file, therefore, it runs in the background of Windows processes.


Sometimes viruses and other cyber threats may disguise themselves as a genuine and legitimate Windows operating process in order to hide themselves and prevent their removal. If your ccSvcHst.exe is located not in the C:\Program Files, there is a high possibility that this executable file is a virus. If you have even the slightest suspicion that this file is malicious, you should not waste time and check it with this tool: RegCure Pro.
