Hourly Live Update

Since updating Norton to ver. I have been getting a live update check almost hourly which appears to be keeping my computer from going into the sleep mode overnight. How can I avoid the hourly check ?

Re: Hourly Live Update

Hi Curmudgeon,


Shortly after I upgrded to I was receiving  frequent automatic LiveUpdates.  The vast majority of them were Norton Web Protection Definitions.  Then on Aug 30 I received  a Norton Web Protecion Defintions (HU update and frequency of Auto LiveUpdates slowed way down.  I have no idea if Nortonwas just catching up after the upgrade, as the upgrade was phased?


Perhpas a look in your LiveUpdate History will show something.  One thing I got into the habit of doing since I shut down my system every night, is to do a manual LiveUpdate after the system is totally bootd in the AM - this pulls all the updates that came over night and I only show a few auto updates (as opposed to Interactive) for the past few days.


More info on the automatic update here.


Please bear in mind, if the automatic hourly LiveUpdate runs and does not find any new updates - there will not be an entry in the LiveUpdate History.

I will go with the overnight shut down route.
