I am using Windows with Vista and Norton Internet. I also have Adobe Elements. I receive updates from time to time bu I can't install them, reason being Norton Internet. I am unable to find a way to disable Norton long enough to install updates. Does anyone know how I might accomplish this? Regards

You should be able to right-click on the Norton icon on your task bar, bottom right, and there you will see the option to disable Anti-Virus auto protect. A window pops up and you enter for how long it should be disabled.
