Hello,

I have Adblock plus activaited on my browser but recently a lot of popups have been popping up.  Also, my Symantec Antivirus and spyware will not update.  Even after I update my antivirus it still keeps saying that it is still out of date from Monday.  Also, if I disable everything and click on fix to fix everything nothing happens.  I have to renable protection manually but the antivirus defintions still won't be updated.   I am not sure if it is virus related but can anybody offer any suggestions or help me?

Thank you

Can you be specific about the string 'Symantec Antivirus and spyware'? What exact product do you have as your security software?

SEP 11 is outdated and has crossed the end of support of life. You will have to upgrade it to SEP v12 for getting support.

"On January 5th, 2015, Symantec Endpoint Protection version 11.0.x will reach end of support life. Virus definitions and security updates will cease to be published to LiveUpdate and general support for the product will no longer be provided."

"Endpoint Protection 11.0.x clients will no longer be able to download updates from Symantec LiveUpdate or an internal LiveUpdate Administrator."

That would explain why you are denied updates. Kindly upgrade to SEP v12.
