Unable to update Norton

  MIKE 17:59 29 Mar 2004

Oh dear another problem. Has anybody had any troubles downloading the latest virus updates from Norton I keep getting the following error message
Installing Norton AntiVirus Virus Definitions (1 of 1), failed.
LU6004: LiveUpdate did not complete successfully.
Due to a transmission error, one or more LiveUpdate components failed internal authentication. Please run LiveUpdate again. If the error persists, contact your network administrator or LiveUpdate provider.
Any ideas folks

Had the same problem only a few minutes ago. Failed 3-4 times but finally got it right. Just manually run LiveUpdate a few more times & see how things go. If still no joy post back.

I have norton set on auto update,updates virtually every day no hassle

Yes you're right, but, what was unusual this time was that Auto update itself was causing the problem initially. Then experienced the same problem while using Manual update to download the definitions, until I finally got it right. This is the first time since I've had NIS (a year) that Auto update has misbehaved on me - hope it's a one off & doesn't keep happening.
