Type in "norton internet security 2004" in the search to the left, there are a few postings on this subject.
Sorry I cannot be more positive.

Has it worked before ? Are you on XP?, is the firewall on?, if so go to control panel; win firewall; exceptions tab; is norton ticked in programs and services list, if norton is not there click add progam, then add norton to list and tick.

I have same problem with Norton 2003. I've just tried adding live update to the windows firewall exception - but it didn't fix live update - Do I need to restart computer ? I will do this later obviously ! Thanks for the help - which I didn't even ask for ! You guys are brilliant

you will need reboot, with AVG7 i had to put 3 files in to get it to work.
