Do you mean it will not do an automatic update? Can you do a manual update?

Do you get any message when trying to update?.

I had a problem about 18 months ago with version 2003, and was advised to download the update direct from the Symantec FTP server.

Suggest you log on to click here and ask the site to run its checking program.

I did this yesterday to try and find something else that was not working for me, and it told me my Liveupdate was out of date and offered a small download to update it. Did this and it installed without problem.

My original problem of very frequent Intrusion Attempt Dialogue Boxes, which make using this computer for anything else whilst on-line almost impossible did not seem to be addressed - had the cheek to suggest that I should pay for a new version of Internet Security 2004, when this version is only a couple of months old!
