I would remove this subscription.Do not update it. Go to add and remove programs and remove it from there. Then download AVG free and run that. AVG is a great free antivirus.

I have installed kaspersky 2013 and run update a number of times but it is still giving me that data base absolute


I think it gives that false warning when you have not activated it yet or activation has ended. It updates both the virus definitions and the program regardless. I think only goodies like spam filter stop when not activated. The firewall and virus protection remain functional.

I received a pop up that my Avast software was out of date, I purchased a disk this year. Could this be accurate?


Your Virus definitions are most likely out of date if you haven't updated since your install. The AVAST software should be set to auto update for the best protection and to deal with this. Do not click any windows that open telling you this as there are several Viruses out there that will show you a box like that and trick you into downloading stuff you don't want or need.

Cant get live updates to work and it keeps trying me I'm at risk


live updates usually have problems like this but its very rare. try to do the manual update for your virus definitions instead. go to the website and download the latest virus definitions there. when done, you can manually update your antivirus by doing this.

I can not make update for norton antivirus , massage number LU1814 apper


Update your antivirus program if an update wasn't performed during the install or you didn't have an Internet connection available to you during the installation.

Update your virus definitions, the "signatures" that identify known viruses. When you buy your antivirus program, you'll receive a subscription for an update service which will allow you to download any new virus definitions. The update subscription is often for a year, so eventually you'll have to purchase a new subscription.

Upgrade your antivirus program. Antivirus companies release new versions of their software every few years. The new version will have features not available in your current system. Purchase these new upgraded programs and you'll have the latest features, enhanced virus protection and a fresh subscription for virus definition updates.

Maintain your antivirus software by scheduling automatic updates. If you rely on manual updates, you can easily forget to perform them and your virus definitions can fall behind

be sure that virus definitions on your anti virus client is fully up to date. Having an anti virus software with an out dated virus definition is like having a gun with out any bullet. Update your virus definitions and do a full scan on your laptop.

Symantec antivirus scheduled updates time resetting to default


It sounds like you need to be using managed mode for the workstation installations. When you do this, the server will contact the workstations when there is a new update, and not the other way around. You wont have to worry about when it checks if that is the case.
