Symantec virus definitions updating

29 Mar

Been trying for two days to update the virus definitions. About 3% update will download then it is if it can't load anymore. Click 'Help & Support' on your norton window, and then About, to see what version you have got. Something seems to be wrong with connecting the server.? I'm using Norton 360 v 3.5.2.1.1; Windows XP SP3; Automatic update is on. With Norton Live Update it will run a little whild and say it is downloading updates.

I've tried both FTP and the other link from the support link. You will most likely have to do a manual 'Run Live Update' from the bottom of your Norton window to get it, and then do a 'Restart'. After about an hour the one-click update checking of my Norton 360 came back to say the internet connection was not good!

Running Live Update (the first option below) is usually the easiest and most effective, but other options are available.

Using one method of updating does not preclude the other.

Hi poppy Please see if you can download malwarebytes from this site instead.

No matter how long I wait for it to update - it doesn't - I have update it manually (by clicking on run live update) and after it updates, it's all back to normal : SI found out that after turning on my pc - X hours later, the live update does't run automatically.

Also, have you tried running 'Malwarebytes, just in case you have any malware ? Download the free version, install, update, then do a full scan. As you haven't used your laptop for so long, have you done a manual 'Windows Update' since you started it up again.

Then, it always comes back with something like "unable to load all the updates" so I keep doing that. I've tried to download the Malware bytes but, now that I think of it, everything I try to download will download about 3 % then it will seem to "hang up" and acts like it won't download anymore.
