This blog is primarily concerned with NIS 2007 (and a bit on NIS 08). I have nothing to say about more recent versions.

This blog is more or less dormant (except for occasional comments on related news), and is being left on-line as a historical record and perhaps as a warning to future generations of anti-virus coders.

LiveUpdate "Express"

Not much going on.

We've slipped to #2 on Google.

Why do they call it "LiveUpdate Express" when it actually takes about three minutes to get 246kB of minor updates installed?

Not only that - when you login to your Windows box, Liveupdate uses more than 50% of your cpu for about a minute or two, with the end result that your box responsiveness becomes slow and people blame Microsoft for making OSes that suck. MS should prohibit Symantec software from running on Windows :-)

P.S.: thanks so much for giving us this space - I was looking for some other enraged user when I googled up 'Liveupdate Sucks' :-)
