I have a hard time updating versions of Symantec AV that’s lagging behind in terms of virus definitions. The servers don’t seem to respond at all, and even less so during the evenings (when the US has awoke). This is a message I got last night when I gave up and turned off instead of waiting for it to ping the symantec servers:
Liveupdate is aborting.
It can take a few moments cleaning up.
That’s the most gross worning I’ve ever read in any OS. I was like: "put the coathanger down, L’update, and let the professionals handle it.. christ!"
In other news, I can now choose not to pre-order Harry Potter. Great! I won’t.
