Hi,

My latest windows update won't seem to update properly - it starts then stops and comes up with the following message

Updates were unable to be successfully installed

The following updates were not installed

Security Update for Microsoft .NET Framework, Version 1.1 Service Pack 1 (KB886903)

ALSO

My Norton Antivirus is popping up saying I'm not protected against the latest threat which is "Trojan Peacomm" When I click protect me now it starts the process but says the Outbreak Alert cannot protect me from this rapidly spreading threat and tells me to run liveupdate. I tried running the liveupdate seperately which was successful so it said. But Im still not protected against this Trojan after rebooting. Is flashing up as Urgent Attention too.

The first problem I would create a new thread for in our Windows XP section.

As for the Norton alert, it appears to be a Norton sales ploy and it is going wrong.
It seems the update servers are somewhat overloaded so error messages are coming out.
It's just warning you that you need to update norton NOT that you have the virus.
