Norton usually will not interfere with DNS server inquirries and settings. Your DNS records in your system may be corrupted, however and that will cause a problem. This could happen from an update to the DNS table not being finished when your system powered down, for example. You can reset your DNS records in your system with the following routine:
This will flush your DNS and reset the winsock:
Click Start > Run, type cmd.exe and click OK.
(Note: for Vista users, you will need an elivated command prompt > click START and type cmd in the START Search box; right click on cmd.exe listed at the top of the normal START list and choose "Run as administrator..." Then continue as below.)
ipconfig /flushdns [Enter]
netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt [Enter]
netsh winsock reset [Enter]
