Well for Microsoft Money you shouldn't be using that old version, Microsoft released "Microsoft Money Sunset" (Microsoft Money version 17) a couple of years ago for free. As for the other, it is supposed to have high CPU usage as it is a movie editing program. As for Norton, you should uninstall that resource hog and install something a bit slimmer, such as Microsoft Security Essentials or AVG.

These notices are completely normal. They are intended to alert people when a program uses a high percentage of resources as it can slow other applications and you may not know why. It's just a courtesy notice. No need to change anything in your system as all is fine.

Technical ignorance is NOT a destiny it is a choice. Do your homework so that you can make technically informed decisions and not be duped by advertising hype or mis-information stated as fact when its not.
