My grand daughter has bought a new laptop for uni, and has norton antivirus included.
however she hasn't an internet connection, so how can she update her program? can she get an update disk from norton? logrin

if she is not using the internet why would she need to update antivirus

You can still get viruses from infected floppy disks !!

That's a common way of virus transmittal.

Has your granddaughter asked Norton if it's possible to get updates on disk?

Is is possible for her to get a friend to download the A/V update on to a USB Pen drive or CD-RW?. She could then use this to update her laptop. She could also ask the Uni IT department of they could find a way round this.

I would be most surprised if Norton supply update disks. They release a new update every day.
