Anti-virus update problems for XP users

  muddypaws 16:03 06 Feb 13

Well it didn't affect my XP at all. Perhaps it was overnight. Link doesn't state when it occurred.

Link to twitter says it was yesterday.

**"Kaspersky told its customers: Please disable the web AV component of your protection policy for your managed computers. It then told them to go the repositories section, download an update and re-enable the protection."**

Those would be the customers who couldn't connect to the web to get the update.

I wonder how the company contacted its customers. Presumably it was by email.

I find it so infuriating when my Norton security update involves [typically] a 100mb download every couple of months or so, 'cos it 'eats up' my monthly 1GB allowance ... about £1, in monetary terms.

I couldn't live with a 1GB allowance, I dumped my 40 GB in favour of unlimited, sadly I find that some months I don't even reach 40GB!

Aitchbee , do you think you need Norton?

  Aitchbee 18:52 08 Feb 13

rdave13 .... it came free with the beta testing forum, last year, but is probably more [security] than I need. It's was worth-while using it, though.

NOBODY needs Norton, and no one who has ever tried to uninstall it will agree!

  SillBill 18:56 08 Feb 13
