Virus definitions updating
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.Hs, then owever, it checks for updates, downloads, then after a few - 15 or so seconds of downloading gives one of the following: "Not all of the updates were successful", "Not all of the updates were successful", "Failed to check for some updates", It keeps saying Definitions Update 27 days (as of today) ago.It never changes during the day regardless of how many update times I've run it for the last four days.(says last definitions update 12/31/2009.Hi poppy Please see if you can download malwarebytes from this site instead.Download the free version, install and update then run a FULL scan.Hi poppy Your malwarebytes log shows a problem with and I think maybe regedit also. I've been trying to get this laptop to lownload virus definitions for at least 3 days.
We strongly recommend you keep automatic updates enabled.
I guess all I can do is keep running manually the Live update, but when do I give up?
Hi poppy How much time do you have left on your subscription of N360? It's almost as if there is a problem having to do with the time synchronization. Could there be something wrong with the battery perhaps?
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 188.8.131.52.1; 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!
