I'm not sure if this is a result of a virus. Each day, I get a popup from Norton saying:

"Your Virus Protection is not up to date. Run LiveUpdate to update your virus definitions"

So I go ahead and download them, press finish at the end and thats it. Then the next day, the whole thing starts up again. The only thing odd that i've noticed is that it never asks me if I want to restart afterwards (I thought that was the norm).

Any ideas why the updates arent taking? Is it possible that there are new updates every single day (for the last week straight)? I've never encountered such a frequency of updates.

Norton and most of the good antiviruses will have updates almost everyday and on some days you may have more than one update. Do you not have Norton set to Auto-Update?

My Dad's Norton did the same about a month ago and I tried and tried to fix the problem of the updates not working. It seems to be a big problem lately with Norton. I tried all the websites troubleshooting and that didn't work either. Finally, my Dad went and bought Mcafee and deleted Norton entirely.
