Now everything works like magic and I state that I have not made any changes to DNS or anything else.
The only thing I noticed is that Windows Update Agent has been silent updated on PC startup, I do not know though this may have influenced, for as far as I know, should not get into anything ...
I had same problems during quick scan, 10 min. just for SecurityRisk.FlushDNS until last night.
Today I turned On the PC, I run 2 times a quick scan and a full scan, the problem does not longer occurs. The scan times are returned normal. Approx 2,30 min.for a quick scan and 32 min. for a full scan.
I ask to Symantec if they have released and updated silent, I do not see any update on history, or some information about this problem.
Specs: NIS12 18.104.22.168, Win7 sp1, Intel Core 2 Quad @ 2,6 Ghz, 500 GB HDD, IE9
Same here. I removed Norton DNS to test and the scan worked OK. I think the fix was an updated virus def.

I would just like to remind you guys that if you are using your PC outside, like at McDonald or at a public library, you may want to turn off Norton DNS since these places uses the DNS to "redirect" the PC to a login page before you go online. If you use Norton DNS, you will find yourself unable to go online. I find myself at this dilemma but unable to find the issue. I finally was able to get online by disabling Norton DNS and let the PC find its own DNS server. Therefore, my advice to you is to disable Norton DNS on a PC which you would be using out and about like at Starbucks, etc.
