Log on to AOL. On the AOL Welcome page, click the AOL Internet browser. Start LiveUpdate. Follow the instructions in “Update procedures” on page 52. When the LiveUpdate session is complete, close your AOL browser.
If your LiveUpdate session requires that you restart your computer, disconnect from AOL before restarting.
If you update on an internal network
If you run LiveUpdate on a Macintosh that is connected to a network that is within a company firewall, your network administrator might set up an internal LiveUpdate server on your network. LiveUpdate should find this location automatically.
If you have trouble connecting to an internal LiveUpdate server, contact your network administrator.
If you can’t use LiveUpdate
When new updates become available, Symantec posts them on the Symantec Web site. If you can’t run LiveUpdate, you can download new update files from the Symantec Web site.
