I'm running Symantec Client Security.

The version in "about" reads Symantec Antivirus

Our network admin thinks no one needs to update virus definitions more than once a week. :tazz:

I disagree. However, the LiveUpdate button is locked, and I am forced to wait to synch my laptop with the office network. It can not be done remotely.

Since I may be on the road for a couple of weeks at a time, I couldany way to re-enable easily be left vulnerable to new viruses.

Is there any way to re-enable Liveupdate? Through an INI file maybe?

that setting seems to be locked due to an administrative policy..i would assume that they are running the symantec server stuff and using it to manage the clients in which case they would have to change the permissions on your account...also..inform them that when their jobs are taken away from them because that virus definition update came one day after the president's computer died that you told them so

syamntec releases virus updates weekly, though they can be updated more often if the admin so desires. unless we see a virus outbreak at work or see a viri alert from symantec then we stick to the default weekly update. when there is they will release a new update.

if you have admin rights on your system you can download the the via intelligent updated at http://securityrespo...r/download.html
