    hello again
    this morning a had a little surprise on my network..
    you must know that im using thin clients and pc..

    this morning for some reasons, my Norton corporate editons sent a broadcast message to all my PC"s saying tha my virus defenition was out of date... mmmmm the thing is that when i ran live update from my server, everything says its up to date and the last updates available was septemebr 19th.... that i already have

    and when i go on my client pc an see for the virus def, its exactly the same as the one i got on my server....

    my question is: why is it broadcasting a message to my pcs when everything is up to date on my server.

    Got a PM:

    Its just that some virues can disable certain functions in virus scanners. It was just a precaution really.

    Which version of Norton have you got, and is it just the virus scanner, or the full Security system?
