  1. Restart Comp and run LiveUpdate Again
  2. Find out which Update is failing
  3. If Common Client or Redirector files are failing
    1. Do a complete Manual Uninstall if the issue doesn`t fix -All profile folders, -Registry key, -Temp folder
    2. Clear the contents of c:/windows/prefetch
    3. Clear c:\windows\Installer for symantec norton and common clients files

    Symantec has a fix-it tool for this problem.

    It worked for me.

    I couldn’t get the “fix it” tool to download… reinstalled the live update… still no success… I guess i am screwed…

    Uninstall NIS 2006, you can leave the key info.
    Reboot Windows box.
    Disable Windows Firewall.
    Install NIS 2006.
    It worked for me.

    PS: Uninstalling NIS 2006 does not stop the subscription clock.

    Here is another very simple solution that worked for me. I can’t take credit for it only finding the smart cookie that discovered what to do before me!!

    Stuckwithnorton contribution:
    “I unchecked the “protect my symantec product” on the Options-norton antivirus-micellaneous page and re updated –it worked. The I turned it back on later.”
