the last update I have from NAV 2003 is dated 12.02.03. I've checked out their website and I was sure I saw a date of 14.02.03. It wouldnt download.

Is this the latest date you found?

PS Just run live update again and got the green tick with all is upto date message and its dated as above.

found the same date.

just reupdated, and was surprised at the download.

norton internet security URL updates 14,127kb!!!
total download 16,928kb.

if that is a common download no wonder they were struggling.

suspect my norton was clobbered by the backdoor.assisin.
