Is the Task Scheduler running as a system process? - in other words, do other scheduled tasks startup - test this by just adding a new task which opens Internet Explorer or notepad in 5 mins or something as a once off thing .
Basically - if notepad opens after those 5 mins Task Scheduler is running! (don't you feel like we've just gone in one circle? :p)

If it is running then try deleting the task and then getting Norton to enable scheduled system scanning again (either do this by deleting the task from Task Scheduler, or from within Norton by disabling and reinabling the task - it should be one of the options on the main screen with the green tick infront of it)

From there post back with the results which'll help find relavent results
