Norton 2011 Virus Definitions failed to complete

I have been running Norton for many years with no problem.  When I see the red exclamation point, I click Fix and norton updates itself.  I cannot remember how I installed it.  For the past week, I have had problems with the update.  Last week, I just kept running it until it updated.  This morning, I cannot get it to update the virus definitions.  It says Norton successfully applied 2 out of 3 updates.  The one that has the red x is Norton 2011 Virus Definitions.  When I click Tech Support, I get An Error has occured with Norton Security Suite  Error: 8920,204

When I click about, it says I am running Product Name: Norton Security Suite, Version Vendor name Comcast.

What should I do?  Please do not use abbreviations unless you explain what they mean.
