Virus definitions out of date

I have read here that people are also having this problem but with no real fix.

1. Running Windows XP - Running Norton internet security 2012

2. Started getting message "Virus definitions out of date" - reran no fix

3. With software renewal close I tried to use "removal tool but got message that the tool version was out of date"

4. removed Norton internet security 2012 with "add/remove programs"

5. Install a "new" copy of NIS 2012 - Still go the same problem.

6. Definition date is correct and everything seems to be working except for this warning.

7. Is my computer safe?

Hi jackson42,

Check your system date and time - if the date is incorrect, it can cause these sorts of issues.
