Although Norton Antivirus (version 10) seems to work properly, attempting to run LiveUpdate 4.0.4 returns the following error:

"There are pieces missing from LiveUpdate. Try re-installing LiveUpdate"

However, I can't find the original installation discs.

I've looked in the previous system folder, but can't find any orphaned symantec files. Does anyone know what might be missing and where to find it?

Norton LiveUpdate

I've had exactly the same problem with Norton Live Update not working after I upgraded to Leopard telling me "there are pieces missing". When I tried to download v4.0.4 from Symantec site, I had no success. Anyone got an answer?

Without getting into a argument can i ask why you have norton in the first place
again not wanting to get into a argument but norton is possibly the worst av out
there and does more harm than good to Macs
I second this statement. This isnt about the argument 'no need to install Anti Virus stuff' thats up to you. This is about Norton destroying every Mac I have ever put it on.

SERIOUSLY avoid Norton as much as you can. It wraps itself around EVERYTHING on your system and comes up with errors all over the place when in actuality there are none.

I agree, having used Norton a lot during my PC years, I hated it with passion. Slugged up the whole system, made life very difficult for doing simple things.

Mac version does similar things.

Presume you meant to say reality? :p

I'm going to add to the Norton bashing. It raped my friend's PC. It slowed everything down and then after she uninstalled it (using the "proper" uninstaller, mind you) not all of it went away and it decided to prevent her from installing anything (incuding updates for iTunes, MSN, etc). Luckily it's an old laptop and about due for replacement anyway.
