Schedule LiveUpdate

I have a problem, or maybe an issue, with Liveupdate.  I have read on a number of web posts that there is no schedule feature for Liveupdate and indeed I can't find one.  I have also read that the reason for this is that it is run frequently (every hour) that a schedule is not needed, I have an issue with this.  My issue is that whenever I run Liveupdate manually (and I tend to do this every few weeks) there are 3 to 5 updates waiting to be applied, if Liveupdate is being run that often why do I always have these outstanding updates waiting?

Re: Schedule LiveUpdate

Live Update will run hourly and download updates when they are available.  If the machine has been shut down or asleep it takes a few minutes before it will check for updates depending on your settings.

You can right click the Norton tray icon and select View Recent History > choose LiveUpdate from the drop-down menu at the top and you will see what updates have been downloaded and when.

A little bit of knowledge is... well a little bit of knowledge.

Re: Schedule LiveUpdate

Thanks for your reply.  I have run it manually every few weeks for over 6 months now, it ALWAYS has at least 3 outstanding updates, if it was being run every hour then occasionally there would be no updates waiting but that isn't the case. I have now checked the log you mention and Liveupdate does appear to be running. The interval seems to vary from an hour, to  3 hours,  many of them say they downloaded updates.  So I guess it is working as intended, it's just strange I always find outstanding updates.

Re: Schedule LiveUpdate

The timing of your manual run of LiveUpdate will determine whether there are updates or not. If you happen to run it manually just after the automatic run, there may not be anything available. If you manually run just before the automatic run, you may have a few updates available. It is just a matter of timing. It has nothing to do with how well the automatic update is working.

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

Also the history will only show a Live Update entry when it finds something.
