ccmexec.exe is a part of the Microsoft SMS operating system service. This service calls upon another service, the SMS Agent Host - apparently it scans your hard drives for known applications that might need updating. IT departments often use this to update software & settings on PCs thoughout an organization. It's safe to shut down the associated services using the Service control panel admin tool (disable SMS Agent Host, and SMS Remote Control Agent)

Norton is warning that the SMS service is trying to communicate with the computer - its not a virus or malware but its annoying.
