Hello Holly and welcome!

Since the default Norton Idle Time Out is 10 minutes, try setting your screensaver to 15 minutes which should reduce the instances of interference.

Just to answer your question about the new installation of Norton vs. the older and why the newer has the notifications more than the older:
Norton will want to build an Insight "database" of the Trusted files on your system and also report any files it finds of "interest" to the Norton / Symantec servers. This is part of the Community Watch processes and lets Norton stay current with the varied files that are out in the real world. You can read more on Insight here and in the Norton Help file. When first installed, there are many files not rated or reported to Norton, so the background tasks of Insight and Community Watch are triggered to run frequently to help get your system up to date. After some time, these internal databases are caught up and kept up to date with less frequent background runs of Insight and Community Watch.
Thus a system with Norton on it for some time will have less background tasks running to keep it up to date than one with Norton just installed. Also, version 2010 does have some newer engines that will involve different databases at Norton / Symantec then the 2009 versions. You may see an increase in the background activity with the 2010 product for just a few weeks as the databases on both sides (your system and Norton / Symantec's) catch up with each other.
Does this answer you questions better?
