So is "Whenever I restart the computer and run full system scan , Norton again scans the whole system
even when I have not done any modifications to those trusted files." a normal behaviour ?
Note that same things happen even when I do not connect to internet......so no chance of worms or malwares
Also please give some details of the scenario when Norton Insight works
I still know very little about Insight

I doubt that it matters whether you connect to the internet or not -- there are other ways of getting infected.
<<I still know very little about Insight >>
You are not alone ..... the only people who know how it works are Symantec and I'm not one of them <s>
But seriously have a look in the root Norton Community at the blogs and there has been one devoted to Insight with a lot of background information.

Do You Know What?
You Have Made My Day!
Asking all those Norton Insight questions.
I only realised the stupidness of Norton Insight... A few days ago.
I ran a Full System Scan
Not realising there was already a Full System Scan Scheduled to run later that day.
When the second Full System Scan - Popped Up! ... But only ran for 4 minutes ...
I couldn't understand what was going on
I thought there was something terribly wrong
Then I saw a comment on here about - Norton Insight .. And - Only Subsequent Scans
And.. The Penny Dropped!
I Agree With Everything You've Said & Asked - 100%
It's us that need some - Insight
Crazy! ... Isn't It?
Who in the world...
Is going to regularly Full Scan their computer .. More than once a day.
Run a Full System Scan
Then run another Full System Scan ... Just to see it run quicker

Here is a good Norton article on how Insight works.
Hope it helps.

Hi Phil_D :
I read that article but can you tell me if Insight works Only when I do a consecutive scan ......and not when I restart the computer without any changes to files.
Why does it scan the whole system again even when there is no change to the files ?
Also read Zana's post (if you haven't)....that also raises the same question
Thanks for reply !!!
