Problem updating norton antivirus

The problem is not that I want to allow the update to install 1 time, I AM NOT USING DEFENDER.

I am using Norton Security and so Defender is turned off properly but the definition files are still pushed out through Update and then fail when installation is attempted.

To make sure the antivirus software runs effectively, you need to update\/upgrade the PC security program.

Norton comes with 2 update options as manual and automatic update; the user can enable or disable the program as per needs and requirement. In such case, you need to contact the Norton Antivirus Support Australia for resolving the update errors.\r\n\r\n Step 3\r\n\r\n Now, you need to track the progress of the live update download and install it accordingly by following the on-screen options.

So far there haven't been any reports of the vulnerability being exploited maliciously, but that doesn't lessen the severity of these security flaws.

Ormandy writes that the Symantec Security Team was responsive when Project Zero brought up these vulnerabilities. They don’t require any user interaction, they affect the default configuration, and the software runs at the highest privilege levels possible." Symantec has millions of individual customers, not to mention its enterprise offerings for everything from small businesses to massive institutions.

You can check this advisory to confirm that you have the most recent updates. Tavis Ormandy, a researcher in Google's Project Zero cybersecurity analysis group, revealed the "details of multiple critical vulnerabilities" in a blog post Tuesday.

As I said I have dealt with 2 support engineers and 1 supervisor and all they have done after hours of trying to "fix" the problem is get the failed definition to install insisting that the problem is now fixed- they turn Norton off or uninstall it, turn Defender on, install the definitions then turn Defender back off and Norton back on or make me reinstall it.One engineer went so far as to say the problem is because Norton Security is *NOT* compatible with Windows 10 and went even further to say that because I am using it I now have viruses and corrupt files.I pushed back and he started backing down by suggesting it was his opinion that Norton doesn't work.Instead of building up to it gracefully, I'm just going to tell you right now: Make sure any Symantec security products you use are fully updated.On Tuesday, a Google researcher published about serious vulnerabilities in Symantec's offerings, and you need to make sure you have the right patches before you read anything else.
