Appreciate your time and effort on this - you were right, there is a program possible for it (I feared it was my laptop's HDD dying). It has to be getting stuck in some kind of loop. This is completely normal, and those numbers in the screenshot don't look unusual for an idle system.

Now Norton is only getting stuck on the most recent one instead of having all 4+ of them open. Any ideas on how to determine what's opening the files if it's not Norton? Also, I can't manually install MalwareBytes updates (get error message) or update MSSE defs (just hangs at SEARCHING).
