Assuming you cannot access the internet with the computer in question (if you can, open Symantec and find "Update".

Here is the link to the area of Symantec to get the latest virus definition file;
Get the correct signature file based on your program version under "Select Product" Download & transfer to the correct location within the Symantec folders (Follow instructions)

Most likely you'll need to be able to view your system files.
(For XP) Go to: Tools/ Folder Options/View/ Uncheck "Hide protected Operating system files"

Let me know if this helped you

I am using nod32...yest i got some virus in my system.....but when m tring to scan 4m es automaticaly closin every me out???

Well I don't wanna scare do but you are in a real **** bro. But don't worry try this solution.
First of all back-up all your data (somewhere else not your hard drive).
First option available to you is to RESTORE YOUR SYSTEM IN SAFE MOOD (you can go to boot to safe mode by pressing the F8 key at the system startup you might have to press F8 key more than 1 time).
If you are using windows xp then you can restore your system by going to START> ALL PROGRAMS> ACCESSORIES> SYSTEM TOOLS here you will find the SYSTEM RESTORE option (restore your system at any available date before which you got that virus).

you can try scanning via nod32 in safe mood. If nod isn't already running go to the installation folder (normally it is C:\Program Files\ESET\ESET Smart Security) and run egui.exe after that try scanning your computer.

Third option
is that you can try online scan offered by many antivirus companies like mcafee etc (try googling with the Terms "free online scan" to get the complete list of online scan providers).

Fourth one
is to try the standalone virus removal tools like ones provided by the symantic corporation or try googling with the terms "virus name+ remover".

Fifth option is try installing a new antivirus (in this case i'll recommend mcafee) and try scanning your system with your new antivirus (but before installing any other antivirus first remove or disable NOD).

Sixth option: Remove your hard disk and scan it on another computer with an up to date antivirus (preferably nod or mcafee) This option worked for me a lots of time.

7th option: Get a portable antivirus copy it to your USB and up date it (do it on any other PC). After updating your portable antivirus go to your pc and scan it via portable antivirus. Before connecting your USB to your own pc please disable your computer from writting data to your PC you can learn how to do it here or send me mail at to get those reg files.

Here are the links from where you can download portable antivirus software:
or here

Last thing you can do is to install a fresh copy of operating system then install an antivirus update it and scan your PC thoroughly. But until you have scanned your PC twice DON"T OPEN ANY OTHER PARTION like Local D, Local E and even your USB
I've personally used all of these options at some stage of my life and they worked for me I hope the same for you.
If none of the above options work or you need any further guidence then contact me at
I'll be happy to help you anytime.
Please gimme a comment, feedback or like.

Forget the password of unistall symantic antivirus

You don't need a password to uninstall it, or at least normally it shouldn't.
Download (as in Save, not Run) this  , wait for the download to complete, unplug the internet cable, run the Removal Toll and follow instructions.

Will not download definition and updates from internet. This has been happening since the renewal date. Yes, the computer is hooked to the internet, I can sure on the web & everything just fine.

If your are unable to update your antivirus software use an online scanner from Bitdefender, Panda or Symantic if you can not access the web site you have Win32.Worm.Downadup.Gen..This worm spreads through your network if you are sharing an internet connection run the removal tool on all pc's.
Follow the following link for removal
