norton IS 09 - background tasks?

I keep getting a message saying - norton is currently performing background tasks - any ideas what this could be? I don't think it's the updates as I only seen it 2 times since yesterday........

These are ie the idle scans (quick and full). When you leave the pc, after 10 minutes it starting to do these.

If you click on the CPU usage, you can see on the list what can be/was done during idle.

Windows 10 Hungarian, Norton Internet Security v22.9.0.71

This message only comes up if it is Norton Insight Scan/Sumission and symantec need to sort this out so it comes up whenever any Background Tasks are being done.
