Hi
I have installed Norton AV 2002 on a Win98 machine. All went well until I tried to update the virus definitions fromn the internet.
The machine in question has AOL 6 for its ISP. I connect to the web using AOL and then try to run live update but Norton says the machine is not connected to the internet!
It is connected to the net as you can surf to anywhere you want to go even the Symantec website, but you can't get updates from them. Any suggestions greatly appreciated.:confused:

Hi
The problem is now solved. What I had to do was access AOL then minimise it. Open Internet Explorer and surf to any page on the net.
Then run liveupdate and it works a treat.

Thanks for the advice.:D
