Symantec Antivirus not updating definitions

When Liveupdate downloads it downloads completely but the version is still the same and the definitions don't actually install it still says 7/3/2009 rev 4. I even tried to manually install new definitions and it is still not working, malwayre bytes shows this \\?\globalroot\systemroot\system32\hjgruitfqrmkta.dll when i run that scan could that be blocking it or something?

Re: Symantec Antivirus not updating definitions

Hi

 

 

1.  Download Combofix  to your Desktop, http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix

 

Don't use yet.

 

2. I have Personal Messaged you the script between the lines, look for the yellow envelope at the upper right hand side.   Copy the Script.

 

3.  Open Notepad and paste it in to notepad with the first line being killall::

 

4. Save the script as "CFScript.txt"       CFScript.txt is what you see on your desktop after saving.

 

5. Disable Nortons Auto-Protect and Firewall.

 

6.  Drag and drop CFScript.txt on top of Combofix.exe, like when you drop files into the recycle bin.

 

7. Combofix will start,  When it is scanning don't move the mouse cursor inside the box, can cause freezing.

 

Combofix will create a log at the finish
