Help Norton 360 v5.

I have Norton 360 v5 version 90 days trial. This is the first time I'm using Norton product. I have little bit problem regarding this product. Norton "Ideal time process" eat more-than 50% of CPU usage. Sometimes it reach 95%. So how do i reduce it?
Please look at this screen shot.

Norton applications and processes come under the name symnatec usually.
Which in this picture is almost at the bottom, using 5Mb of ram and 0 cpu.

Of course when Norton (or any other virus scanning software) is actually doing a scan it will use CPU & RAM resources.

System Idle Process is when the CPU is not doing anything. It is "Idle" and waiting for a request to do something. Also if you have lots of add ons in FF it will use more CPU or have lots of Tabs open.

As has been stated earlier the system ideal (idle) process shows CPU that is not being used by other processes. It is NOT actually being used by that process it is just a reporting feature. Don't worry about it.
