Thanks for the reply, it put me on the right track.
Norton Systemworks 5.0 does not include the Norton Internet Firewall, but the Norton Antivirus part does include Internet Worm protection. I had not considered that was the problem since the memory leaks would mainly happen when my dialup connection was off line.
I could watch ccApp.exe memory usage in the memory manager go up about 40-50k every 2 seconds or so. As soon as I disabled the Internet Worm Protection, the memory usage stopped increasing.
Checking under Antivus, reports, view activity log, Norton Internet Worm Protection, Activities - I could see it was showing a default block on a time synchronization program about every 2 seconds. It was never showing any type of alert popup though.
Details: No logged in account. The present default action is to "block" communications.
Local address: All local network adapters(time(37)).
Process name is
I went to Norton System Worksworks, Options, Norton Antivirus, Internet Worm Protection, Program Control, and added a permit rule for that program. When I reactivated Internet Worm Protection, the memory usage stopped increasing.
ccApp.exe seems to behave better now. If found that I did not reboot frequently, the memory leakage would eventually crash ccApp.exe. Caught that fact the first time I tried to download email to Outlook and it could not connect to the mail servers.
I had stopped running BOINC projects. restarted them after making the change to Norton Internet Worm Protection and it seems to have eliminated the client errors.
Again thanks for the help.
