Recently I began having difficulty with my HP Laptop dv4150 in that
1. Unable to open Windows Messenger (preloaded version) unless I turn off Norton Security.
2. Unable to complete Live Update in Norton Internet Security..Starts the download and then hangs and cursor beings to blink.
3. I attempted to use the Restore feature of Laptop. However, regardless of the date selected the Restore Program responds with the message unable to restore to this date.
I believe I have inadvertently changed or removed a line of code, but not sure....Any thoughts?

go to START>CONTROL PANEL>ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS> find Live Update in the list and uninstall it. Do not restart the computer.

Download the latest version of live update Symantec. Be sure to download the version dated 8-15-2007, also read the text file directly below it. Restart the computer. Find your download and double click to run the installer.

Edit to correct url

Windows Messenger is a know security risk. It is strongly advised that you disable and remove it from your system.


I suggest using AIM or Trillian instead.
