should system process[ ntkrnlpa.exe] be allowed through firewall?

upon checking my norton internet security 2011 logs i noticed that norton was blocking the system process from accessing the net , is this right, doesnt that file need net access, im pretty sure the file isnt corrupt as ive scanned with superantispyware,malwarebytes,hitman pro, and did a full online scan with panda activescan, any info on this appreciated, also i notice that norton blocks malwarebytes and superanti and system from accessing the ccsvchst.exe (nortons process) id really appreciate any answers from one more knowledgeable than myself
