Exclamation Norton Corp ed Update Not Working !!!

Hello,

I have a Norton Corp Edition and a Norton Firewall, (Running on Win Xp Home Ed) when I try to click the Update button on ether one, it is not working. About 30 seconds after I clicking the update button, the msg pop’s up saying something about that “Norton was unable to connect and try later & if that doesn’t work reinstall the updater.”

Now I used the update button b4 many times and I had no problems, but now all of a sudden its not working, I cant recall doing any major changes to the computer or the Norton, so I have no idea why its not connecting.

I don’t have the CD, it was lost somewhere in ruins of my house. How do u think I should precede? Norton msg sad to reinstall the updater, any idea where I can find it, and do I have to remove the old one…im not even sure if its in my add remove….

PS: plz don’t say that Norton sucks, and that I should remove it from my system, I also have another antivirus software running in the back its called the “CA Antivirus” I need Norton mostly for one reason it has that thing that runs in the back that constantly scans ur registry…etc, “Auto Protect”

Please help me out thanks.

I was just about to type ''AHHHH GET RID'' ahha I see Norton as more as a Virus more than anything, but if it suits you then your sorted.

First thing, you should NEVER have more than one antivirus program running.

Is your norton legit? Last known good config wont sort out a software problem, so your wasting ya time trying that.

It could be the server down, so if its just happening now, then give it a day or so and try again.

Having two antivirus programs at the same time will cause them to conflict with eachother and lead to strange issues and instability. Try disabling CA or uninstalling it and see if it works.
