I have Norton System Works set for automatic live update, and this has operated several times in the last week, as the idiot virus writers must have been busy. This morning the little lantern bottom right of the screen started to flash, and went on for some time. I thought that this must be an unusually large download. When it was still flashing about ten minutes later I decided to double click it. A window told me that updates were available and did I want to download them. It was indeed a larger than usual download, and required a reboot and second visit for a further download. My configuration is still set for automatic update. I have never had this happen before, the program just gets on and does what it wants to without my intervention. No problems as far as I am concerned, but I just wondered if anyone else had this happen.
