How to Manually Update Norton Antivirus


You are here:

Norton Antivirus is one of the most widely installed computer security products on the market. If you have Norton installed on your computer, it can be manually updated by using the Live Update feature of the program or by manually downloading updated computer virus definitions from the Symantec website. Some Norton users find the need to manually update the software definitions due to the automatic update feature not working.
