"should this be happening???"

No.

Suggest you get an AV which doesn't hog your PC's resources click here

do you run the scan while you are off line and with nothing else being asked of the computer?

If you do choose another AV, and I think thats a good idea, do be sure to completely rid yourself of Norton before you install anything else. If you get stuck Symantec do a Norton removal tool.

Having 2 anti virus programs would mean that neither would work properly so delete Norton first.

versions 2008 and 2007 are fast at scanning, do you have an older version, anyway should not take that long.
