I can't update my virus definitions. I have the corporate edition 9.0.2.1000 and I'm not connected to the office network.

I get Error LU1814: "LiveUpdate could not retrieve the virus update list, please verify that you're able to connect to the internet and run liveupdate again."

I'm on the internet and can go to a webpage. I'm running Windows XP SP3

I have not seen this error very often, and the few times it has occurred, either a virus has disabled Symantec components, or the product needs to be reinstalled. Take a look at the Symantec supporrt site, particularly:

http://service1.symantec.com/support/ent-security.nsf/854fa02b4f5013678825731a007d06af/c09fd96c16c7731b882571560056aeb6

There a couple of good possibilities in there, one around your local hosts file.

Great! Thanks!

The following entry from that webpage is what fixed it:

The Settings.LiveUpdate file is corrupted
This problem can happen when the Settings.LiveUpdate file becomes corrupted. Delete all copies of the Settings.LiveUpdate file, and then run LiveUpdate again.

To delete the Settings.LiveUpdate files
Start Windows Explorer.
Confirm that Windows is set to show all files.
For directions, read How to make Windows show all files.
Do one of the following, depending on your version of Windows:
Windows 2003/XP/2000: Go to the Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Symantec\LiveUpdate folder.
Windows Me/98: Go to the Windows\All Users\Application Data\Symantec\LiveUpdate folder.
If Windows 98 was updated from Windows 95, the location is C:\Windows\Application Data\Symantec\LiveUpdate.
Windows NT: Go to the Winnt\Profiles\All Users\Application Data\Symantec\LiveUpdate folder.
Delete all of the Settings.LiveUpdate files.
Some file names begin with numbers. For example: 1.Settings.LiveUpdate.
LiveUpdate reverts to the install defaults if you use custom settings
Exit Windows Explorer.
