Stop Norton and see if that process would still run. If it doesnot then update norton and see if that helps solving the issue.
If not you may want to reinstall..

Before that make sure there is no virus in the machine

As already mentioned vpc32.exe might be a component of Symantec's Norton Antivirus. But there are also viruses/trojans that are dropped as vpc32.exe. Because of that I would search all local disks for 'vpc32.exe'. If only the file from Symantec will be found then you should review the configuration of Symantec Antivirus:

http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/ent-security.nsf/529c2f9adcf33a1088256e22005026f1/bcdac2b5d7f7249088256e9e00827e26

This KB article describes which folders and file extensions (.edb and .log) should be excluded from realtime scan.

Hope this helps.
