LUCOMS~1.exe Using High CPU Usage

I have a customer running SBS2003 and Symantec Endpoint Protection.  Recently they are experiencing high CPU usage.  After checking the task manager,  LUCOMS~1.exe is the culprit.  After ending the process, the server goes back to normal but after a few minutes, LUCOMS~1.exe starts up and slows down the computer.

The microsoft best practices suggestion is not to scan the exchange database.  Here is an article about configuring exchange with antivirus. (I am not personally familiar with the process)

I'm going to open a case with Symantec to see if they are aware of a fix for this issue.  I will post back our findings.

LuComServer.EXE has nothing to do with scanning and exceptions. That process is started when LiveUpdate runs to download content. If it is constantly running it is due to your LiveUpdate schedule being set to Constantly. Change the schedule to every hour (or 4, the default) and that should quiet things down for you.
I checked the live update setting and it was set to daily.  I'm downloading the latest version of Endpoint Protection Manager.  Lets see if that resolves the issue.
