Change how often LiveUpdate automatically downloads?

Hi, how can I adjust the duration I have Norton Security automatically check and download from LiveUpdate? I want to do it every hour. Is that possible?

No you can't change the schedule but by default Norton does already check for updates every hour and will download any available updates at that time.  If there are no available updates Norton will check again in another hour.

Hello

If there is nothing to download, however, it does not tell you that. It will just continue to check again in another hour. You will not find downloads every hour. Sometimes there could be a span of 5 or 6 hours with no downloads.

Thanks.

Give Norton time to check for updates.  If you go several hours without any automatic updates we can investigate.

Which version of Norton do you have?  Help / Support > About.  The latest version is 22.9.0.71 but there was an issue with updates on an earlier build.

As noted, Norton will automatically check every hour. If you happen to check 35 minutes after the last automatic check, there could very well be an update or two that will be downloaded. Had you waited the other 25 minutes, those downloads would have been done automatically.

Any manual run of LiveUpdate will pick up an pending updates.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.
