Hi, everyone!

Could anybody help me with my problem? It occured one month ago. Earlier I used Norton without any problem.
When I install Norton Internet Security 2005 (original) it upadates all definitions and so on. After that, when I run Live Update, it dowloads the desired updates and during install it slows down the processor. Performance is up to 100% and nothing happens. The process in background is lucallbackproxy.exe or aleupdat.exe, sometimes another application from the folder Symantec\Live Update. Formatting of all partitions, clearing the entire disk and installing Windows XP (+SP2) from the very beggining doesn't work.
This problem has been reported on various forums by several people, but I didn't find any solution there. The only reasonable suggestion was to get rid of Norton and look for another antivirus software. I conside Norton to be very effective. Now I run Antivir Personal. This is a temporary solution. Do I have to forget about NIS? Can anyone give me anadvice on this?

2X120 GB, 3,4Ghz. I think this is not the case.

If you have a 3Ghz processor you certainly have the power to run the live update, how long have you left live update updating until you cancel it?
Regards,

Alan.

Before it took about 2 minutes to perform the update. Now, after 1 minute, the progress indicaator freezes, CPU performance indicator shows 100%, lucallboxy is in ca. 7 positions in Task Mamager and one of them (or aleupdat.exe) consumes increasing amount of memory. Nothing happens, no Internet transfer, no disk transfer. I quit after 30 minutes. Turning Automatic Live Update "on" gives the same results after 30 seconds of machine restart. RAM is 1GB, therefore sufficient. I am not the only one to have this problem.
