    Well I don't run an Norton anymore, or any AV for that case, but when I did I only did an update when I installed and then everything downloaded and installed by itself via auto-updates (LIve Update), so you may be getting updated during the night and then checking when you already have the latest definitions.

    Hi

    Symantec

    Why don't you Go and Check Out and see if your Defination Files are older than the Currently released one,......... every defination file has a verson number and release date..... .....And Until you sort out the Things with your Live Update in the mean time why not Manually Download the Virus Defination Files............Intelligent Updater as it is called by symantec........it's a selfexecuting exe.......which i sometime use to update my Defibations......

    --Good Luck--

    Remember: if your 1st years (free) subscription, has lapsed. Then the update will STILL D/L those parts of the system that are free. But, the A/V definitions will NOT be D/Led.

    The message will say that ALL of your items are correct and up to date, but it will NOT include the AV.

    This.....

    ..... coupled with the fact that Norton's "renew your subscription" function can be a friggin' nightmare to find your way through and actually end up with an updated subscription is why I quit using it.

    You used to be able to download virus def's from Norton manualy. Without needing to subscribe or when your subscription had run out.

    Don't no if this is still available but it maybe worth looking at to give you more time to see if you want to stay with symantec or try another solution.

    Jinx:

    That only works if your subscription is up to date..... I've moved off Symantec for the most part and am using free AV's wherever I can.
