This is a bit of a whinge, followed by a question...
I have Norton Utilities 2002. All good until Live update wouldn't complete its job- and requested a complete reinstall.
Completely reinstalled Utilities, updated everything using live update (56K modem, very long time...).
Good for about 2 months.
Then same problem, but this time failed to successfully install live update at all.
As you can imagine, having a suite that can't easily update patches and virus definitions is next to useless.(tried twice, no luck)
don't have any faith now that even if i can get live update to install the same thing won't happen again.

I am considering flagging the 8-9 months subscription left and migrating to another vendor altogether.

question: best antivirus product? or utility suite?

cheers!

when you say "failed to successfully install live update" what exactly didn't get installed. if its a new liveupdate then you can download it seperately if need be.

thanks tweak'e- I downloaded liveupdate seperately and it seems to be sorted- for now anyway!
