Norton LiveUpdate settings

Your Norton product protects your computer from vulnerabilities through the latest program updates and definition updates. Automatic LiveUpdate obtains the latest virus definitions through definition updates and keeps your computer secure from the latest security threats.

Definition updates contain the information that lets your Norton product recognize and alert you to the presence of a specific virus or security threat.

You can use the options under Updates to obtain the latest virus definitions through definition updates and keep your computer secure from the latest security threats. Your options are:

  • Automatic LiveUpdate

    Automatic LiveUpdate automatically checks for definition and program updates when you are connected to the Internet.

  • Apply updates only on reboot

    Lets you choose how the program updates obtained by Automatic LiveUpdate need to be applied to your computer. Certain program updates may require you to restart your computer for the updates to complete.

    When you turn on this option, program updates that require system restart are automatically applied the next time you restart your system. However, program updates that do not require system restart are applied instantly. By default, this option is turned off.

    This option is available only in Windows 7 or later.

Thank you!

Thank you for using Norton Support.
