Hi, I have Norton Internet Securituy 2002 running with Windows XP. for the last month when I connect to live update, all goes well at first /everything starts downloading, then suddenly a box comes up saying, LU 1806 unable to install any of the selected updates. I have clicked the help button, but that should be changed to the none help button for the use it is. I have been to the Symantec web site to try and get help, but just go round in circles. I did notice that the NIS download updates has now got to 24,748 kb, rather large for my 56k dail up. My subscription is due at the end of the month, is it a load of bother to change to another security service, would I have to remove the original NIS file first, :thumbsup: Hope to hear from you soon.

:thumbsup: Norton is not so good a program as it use to be .I read a lot of complaints of it not catching viruses and updates not coming through.If you contract is up why not take the program out and install a free one there just as goo or better than a paid program. I use Avast myself and have installed Avast on other computers for other people and they seem to like the program.Avast has automatic updates so you have no worries about missing any.. You can find it here : http://www.avast.com/eng/avast_4_home.html You can read about the program here and at the bottom of page theres a download spot you just click on to and it do the job for you. Good luck Ron. :flowers:
If you not to sure theres a lot of experts around here someone else will comment also so your not alone.

clank - make sure you uninstall Norton Internet Security before installing Avast so that you only have one installed anti-virus program in your system.

I'd look for some reviews of anti-virus programs on the net and get a broader view of peoples reactions to the free anti-virus software. I'm not a fan of Norton Internet Security because i think it tries to be all things to all people and ends up incomprehensible to the average user. Norton Anti-Virus however is (as far as I'm aware) still one of best AV programs out there.
