Ran the anti-malware with current definitions and nothing found.Tried Live Update again and it STILL will not update the virus definitions. This might seem obvious, but have you rebooted your computer lately?The Symantec Intelligent Updater requires no user feedback, as you just have to launch it and wait for the definitions to be installed.Any available Symantec program is automatically recognized and a log file is created to store information about the definition update.
The problem is not that I want to allow the update to install 1 time, I AM NOT USING DEFENDER.
Any security software applications are vulnerable if the virus signature database is not up-to-date, which might result in infections of the hosting system.
Reputable antivirus and protection tools enclose a built-in definition updater to make sure users get the latest signatures, provided their PC is connected to the Internet.
I got Norton on the phone and he could hardly speak.
Norton did what it should when installed- it properly turned off Defender and every indication is that is off.
