help my nails are popping out of my ceilings and walls

I am having a problem with the nails on the wall boards and ceilings starting to poke through the paint. I had my house insulated a few years ago and wonder if that is contributing to the problem. My roof seems to have a vent and I see vents on the sides of my house so I don't know if it's a venting problem or something else. Can anyone help me?

The easiest solution is to replace them with drywall screws, one at a time, wherever they pop out. Then fill the hole with mud, sand and paint.
