So, I am playing a game online when suddenly i start getting lag. I tab out to see what it is and its Norton 360 using its automatic live update feature! I turn it off in the Norton settings but it still seems to update like a minute after i get back in game. Any idea why it is doing this and how can I stop it?(The reason it is annoying me is because i have slow internet and Norton updating steals all the bandwidth and I lag.)

Turning off or turning on Automatic LiveUpdate

If you are connected to the Internet, Automatic LiveUpdate downloads product updates and definition updates every hour.

I don't use Norton so I can't look around in its settings. If no one else replies with suggestions, these are your options:

Norton (Symantec) Live Chat Support
Norton (Symantec) Phone Support
Norton (Symantec) Product Support
Norton Community Users Discussion Forum
