What you describe are Norton Product Tamper Protection events, which are normal and harmless. Legitimate programs often attempt to access Norton files and processes. All such efforts are blocked in order to prevent Norton's operations from being disrupted or compromised by any outside agent, legitimate or malicious. These are not attacks, and Norton is simply logging the events. The outside programs are only prevented from interfering with Norton, and are otherwise allowed to run normally. Threats to your computer that require your attention will be announced through Norton alerts on your PC. The Norton logs are simply a record of Norton's activities.

Thank you very much for your quick reply to my question. I have only noticed this recently in my security history and thought my computers were under attack. I am relieved that this is nothing to worry about.

You're welcome. I think I have responded to more Tamper Protection concerns than any other issue. If you are not familiar with it, the entries can seem worrisome - it comes up a lot around here.
