Two PC's Identical, yet laptop download 8-10Mbs of updates daily?

Hi gang, my fifth time here, but feel it is not  question for Norton 360 Support yet. I have desktop Asrock motherboard, i3 Intel CPU 3yrs. old with the latest Window build 1803, Windows Pro 10-64. I also have a Acer E1 470G Aspire, i3 Intel CPU, with build 1709. 4 yrs. old but not compatible for the 1803 build it has the 1709 build. Other than that they are identical. 

Yet when I run a Custom Scan the Acer downloads 8-10 Mgb. of updates daily. The desktop takes one few seconds to check for updates, while the laptop is downloading 7 to 9 update.before finishing the scan? The desktop is my workhorse, while the laptop is my back up. Use it mostly to make sure it's up to date, for travel purposes.

They are connected to same private ethernet network. Just wondering could firewall settings be blocking updates from staying put, until the next time I install them, which is a daily custom scan? 

I would appreciate a response from those in the know.

Thank

DP.

Hi, DP. No two systems will be exactly the same. Having said that, there is no need to do a daily scan, as Norton will do an automatic quick scan after a definition download.

If the firewall is set to auto, then that's not a factor.

By all means run a full scan once a month, but that's all you really need to do.

The timing of the updates also affects what each system will download when LiveUpdate is run. Even turning on both systems at exactly the same time does not guarantee that both systems have the same updates from the previous day. One may have gotten updates before it was turned off for the day, while the other may not have gotten those updates. Next morning, the second one will need the extra updates to catch up. 

Nothing to worry about.

Hi Norton Fighter, so your saying if one PC is on 10 hrs. but the other is turned off after only 2 hrs. the first may get updates, from the Norton server without my knowledge, or running Custom Tasks?

Thanks for the reply.

DP.

Unless you have turned Automatic LiveUpdate off, Norton will run LiveUpdate about every hour. So in your example, the machine that is turned off last on a given day will have more current updates. The machine that is turned off earlier will have to catch up the next time you start up. It is not necessarily the longest time turned on.

Hi F4E, So then I need not do a Quick Scan daily, but go ahead and check for updates? Wow, I have been doing daily Quick Scans since 2002, disabled Disc Optimization in Custom Scans because Window does that.  In reality all I was doing was creating ware & tear on hard drives, doing it daily.

Thanks for your reply, I'll do that then, Full Scan once a month.

Hi peterweb, I just checked, it is set to Automatic Live Updates, so that pretty much explains it. I just ran Live Updates, there were 3 that didn't make it to the other PC because it is turned off.

Thanks for your reply & everyone who contributed.

Hi, DP. Yes, I run Live Update manually at log on so I have the latest updates, and from then on, let Norton take care of things.
