Rules automatically created for the program: Symantec LiveUpdate part 3
posted by Colleen Shirazi, Saturday, September 29, 2007 at 9:57 AM (Pacific)

Okay...here's what seems to work. You do the Google Answers thing...open NIS 2005, personal firewall, configure, programs. Select all the programs in the box, remove, run the program scan.

Once that's done, follow the prompts and Finish. Look for the entries in the box that say Symantec LiveUpdate. Change them all to Permit All (rather than Automatic). Restart your computer.

Because you've just deleted all of the firewall entries, NIS will prompt you every time a new program tries to access the Internet. Proceed as you normally would.

One of the prompts will be for Symantec LiveUpdate. As soon as you see this, pop open NIS again and double check the Symantec LiveUpdate entries. If any now says Automatic, change it to Permit All. I had to do this only once and so far it seems to have worked (I checked back a few times after that).

I don't know if it's relevant, but I had installed iTunes (don't ask) right before the popup starting popping up. I went back and uninstalled it (I don't need it). Then I noticed Apple had installed some other junk on my computer so I went back and uninstalled that too.

Bet you fifty bucks it was the iTunes.
