How to solve Norton protection updates not fixed
Sometimes, one may face the problem of Norton protection updates not fixed. But to understand why that happens lets look at the basics first. There are number of issues people do face such as Norton not opening or Norton Power Eraser not working.
Norton Live-update is an application developed by Symantec Corporation that downloads and installs security updates (such as spyware, firewall, or antivirus signature files) and software patches. Live-update can only apply updates for a particular version of Norton; it cannot however upgrade a version of Norton to a later version (for example Norton Internet Security 2006 to 2009). To upgrade the product to the latest version, one would have to go to a separate website.
In the past, Norton Live-update was separate software that is installed with all Symantec products. However, with all Norton products since 2009, it is an integrated part of the Norton product.
Live-update first shipped in the 1997 version of Norton AntiVirus 2.0 and soon followed in other products. It was created by the Shared Technology Team at the company’s Cupertino headquarters and later taken over by the Norton team. Symantec holds at least one patent related to Live-update Use of Polymorphic Package Files To Update Software.
Updating your Norton product to the latest version
