    Are you talking about Cloud ?
    I think almost every AV which uses Cloud sends out some of your info to the servers.

    I know the statics about Norton ram usage
    but on my system it made the cpu busy
    the mouse icon showed something was running more oftem(it was accompanied with the blue circle)
    on my system it is not that silent(win 7, 1.8ghz quadcore 6G ram)
    as I said,for a home user like me,this complex suite is not necessary
    I have lighter choices

    Okay, but why state high RAM usage as a reason when you now say it's CPU usage. The things are unrelated. And CPU usage is probably an indication of some kind of conflict.
