Symantec Common Client CC App

ccapp.exe. What is it?

The ccapp.exe file stands for Common Client Application and is the executable responsible for checking emails and auto-protect facilities as part of the Norton Antivirus suite.

The ccapp.exe file is used as the Norton Antivirus real-time scanner. When Windows loads, the ccapp.exe file also loads as VxD or virtual device driver. ccapp.exe scans your system for Trojan Horses, viruses, and worms in the background

Before Windows can completely shut down, the ccapp.exe file will scan boot drives for sector viruses if a floppy disk can be found inside the drive. In case a virus is detected, a message will be displayed asking you to repair the infected floppy disk boot record.

You will be able to view scan details in the recorded report log. The report includes virus name, location of the infected file, when it was detected, and the action performed by the application or the user.

The process ccapp.exe must run at Windows startup. Auto-protect and e-mail check will not function without it.


ccapp.exe is not a critical component, and you can disable it.
