There are legitimate reasons why some organisations may 'scan' for the presence of your computer on the internet and this would trigger a pop-up from the Norton firewall to tell you how clever it's been in blocking this "attack". It should explain this somewhere in the Norton help.
Now that you know your firewall is doing it's job, turn off the reporting function and let it just log the event in a log file. Then, if you want to, you can view the events at your leisure.
