"Hot pixels" are something else. These are pixels always on (or off) regardless of settings...

You're describing high ISO noise. Try enabling NR in camera, and if you really want to use the highest ISO settings, perhaps try something like Photo Ninja for effective noise reduction.

I'm not sure Capture NX2 can cope, as I never touch these high settings. And frankly, above ISO 400 to 800 you're beginning to degrade the otherwise fairly fine sensor...
