Hi sylar:

 

That has to do with Norton Tamper Protection.  It means that system services are accessing Norton files for some reason.  Norton is allowing it but logs the information.  Not a worry.

Under certain circumstances profanity provides relief denied even to prayer.

Hi sylar,

 

Yes, this is normal behaviour. You can also read more on services.exe over here in the Process Library:
