LiveUpdate Lies To Us
This is not a new problem, but I have been continually puzzled by the failure of LiveUpdate to do its job completely. I've experience this with Norton Internet Security at least for the past several years. I'm currently running NIS 2011.
Under Computer Protection on the NIS main screen, there is always a green font message about how many hours, minutes or seconds ago LiveUpdate was automatically run. If I click on Run LiveUpdate to the left of that green font message, a new window opens showing the manually-started Norton LiveUpdate sequence.
That manual process almost invariably checks, downloads, processes and installs between one and six new updates.
Why weren't those identical updates done automatically several hours, minutes or seconds ago as was indicated by NIS? Why should it be necessary to overrride the automatic feature by manually clicking on Run LiveUpdate and downloading and installing updates that weren't done properly?
