Hi experts,

I have just install Norton AntiVirus and LiveUpdate for it.
But my LiveUpdate doesn't work. When I click the Start button of LiveUpdate, this is the message I got

Initializing...
Unable to connect to host
LiveUpdate could not retrieve the catalog file of available Symantec product and component updates. Please verify that you are able to connect to the Internet and run LiveUpdate again.
LiveUpdate session is complete.

Please help me..

r u sure u are connected to internet.
try connecting some known website.

also check for proxy connection, if u are using proxy for IE. then use the same server for Norton Antivirus too.

Greetings, ricjava!
   You need to run LiveUpdate with a supervior or Administrator account

Open NAV and click the LiveUpdate button and click Configure. In the ISP tab, select the radio button for “The Internet Options in the Control Panel” to correctly set the LiveUpdate Internet settings

Also there might be any of these issues.
-----------------------------
1. Symantec System Center
Check the server properties in the Symantec System Center. If the LiveUpdate tab is pointing to an Internal Server, then change it to look at a Symantec LiveUpdate server.

2. Presence of S32luhl1.dll file

   1. Look in the C:\Program Files\Symantec\LiveUpdate folder for the S32luhl1.dll file. If the file exists, then delete it.
   2. Delete the Settings.LiveUpdate file. The location of the Settings.LiveUpdate file varies according to the operating system:
          * For Windows 95/98: C:\Windows\All Users\Application Data\Symantec\LiveUpdate
          * For Windows NT 4: C:\WinNT\\Profiles\All Users\Application Data\Symantec\LiveUpdate
          * For Windows 2000 and XP: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Symantec\LiveUpdate

Note: You must delete the S32luhl1.dll file before deleting the Settings.LiveUpdate file.

Did you make sure that this box was clean of viruses before installing Norton?  Lots of viruses (Klez for instance) will really mess up the installation files of virus software.

I'd completely remove Norton, make sure it is out of registry, scan from the internet (www.symantec.com/securitycheck) and if clean, reinstall.

You could have a bad install of Norton AV.  Uninstall it and reinstall.  Here is how you completely remove Norton AV 2003
