I have NIS2005 win xp home zone alarm free plus all the regular anti spyware programmes, and my norton no longer automatically updates. I have to go and do it manually, which is no big deal, but seeing as it has the features to update automatically, it has just begun to really bug me - any ideas anyone? Thanks in advance.
Do you have dont allow exceptions ticked in windows firewall? if not, look in the exceptions tab and see if anything pertaining to norton-or symantec-is ticked. It probably isnt this, but it doesnt take long to look. The beggar of it is, this rings a bell with me, but I cant put my finger on it. one of my kids machines will flatly refuse to connect and update time from a time server. I cured this once before, last year, (on the same machine) but I've slept since then and cant remember what I did. Frustrating.
BTW, windows firewall is to be found in control panel
