You can stop the Windows "Symantec LiveUpdate Service" but that may cause the client to crash.

OR

Server policies:
Here is more info on LiveUpdate settings: http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=TECH104435

OR

Client policies:

To configure Windows clients to use an internal LiveUpdate server

    Under Policies, click LiveUpdate.

    On the LiveUpdate Settings tab, right-click the policy that you want and then click Edit.

    Under Windows Settings, click Server Settings.

    In the Server Settings pane, check Use a LiveUpdate server.

    Click Use a specified internal LiveUpdate server, and then click Add.

    In the Add LiveUpdate Server dialog box, type the information that you need to identify and communicate with the server that you want to use.

As "Jeff Lewandowski" has suggested above, it is not a good idea to disable the update of the signature file , rather you should have one Live Update server on the remote location to reduce the bandwidth consumption.

Thanks,

You should set SEPM policy to allow the client to download from Symantec servers instead of yours, as noted in the link above.
