Hi, in Norton Security History Log I get Norton Community Watch Pending. with a Process Image message about 20 of them and I hear the hard drive arm accessing data. This happens when the system is idle or when I am running a full scan, I would like to know if somebody is imaging my drive online?

turn Norton Community Watch Off, if you have Privacy concerns.

Norton Community Watch collects information about potential security risks from your computer and sends the information to Symantec for analysis. This helps Norton identify new threats and where they originated more efficiently and provide solutions to block them.
No personal information is sent to Symantec. Norton Community Watch only collects information on running processes, visited URLs, or general system information from your computer when Norton detects a possible risk. It sends data for analysis during a LiveUpdate session or when a scan is run.

@manag:

1. What's Norton Community Watch?

(Only) When participating in Norton Community Watch, the (your) Android (device) will periodically send anonymous malware detection data to Symantec for product-improvement purposes.

Hit here and this PDF to read details.

2. Then:

It's quite normal to have a series/string of Community Watch entries waiting for submission or being submitted. ... Basically, it collects information of interest from your computer and submits it to Symantec. 

in your case.

And...

If you double-click on the individual entries, then you can see what kind of information the entry contains and what kind of information is being submitted.

3. In order to "Turn off or turn on Norton Community Watch", try these steps.

Thanks. :)

Re: Process Image:

I want Norton knowing all on my machine.    Seems silly asking for Norton to protect my machine without allowing Norton to know my machine.  Just saying.
