Hi all,

It started with Norton 360: wouldn't update, hasn't updated for 91 days now. I disabled Norton on startup and installed AVG, and now AVG won't update either.

System is bot-free XP Home SP3, approx three months old (i.e. Norton has never updated, even if it's a 90 day trial), I had a bit of trouble with the Automatic Updates (reregistering wups2.dll didn't help) but updated through IE>Windows Update eventually.

Anyone know what might be interfering with these update processes? Any other ideas appreciated!!
Thanks in advance

For one thing, you shouldn't have two anti viruses on your system even if you have disabled one of them.

You can try a free anti-virus software, AVG Free or avast! home edition.
Actually, the most important anti-virus software is safe from malicious sites and software.
