Question about Norton Internet Security 2005 (37648246941) for PC
First i had norton antivirus 2005 and had the same problem. Everything else will update except for the trusted application list. I have used their autofix tool and downloaded everything they tell me I have uninstalled with the removal tool and made sure all the norton and symantec and the shared folders were deleted. I reinstall about 20 times so far i have 2 discs and ive used both and still the same thing it runs and runs and runs then it says it has errors and live update was cancelled. i really am about to give up i have tried everything including making sure all the services are started then i tried to disable norton and antivirus still will not install everything else will and is up to date
Norton Antivirus 2005 has lots of errors and problems specially with its updates and also its virus scan is not reliable. Norton 2005 can also corrupt your windows while updating itself its better you uninstall it completely and go for Norton 2007 or my favourite Mcafee Total Protection 2007 which has no problems with updates and has anti spyware, registry repair and lots of things. You can also go for AVG Anti Virus which is quickest of all

Use solution #5, it did work for me. Just be patient. Unless you are infected by W32Fanbot virus (rare), whose traits you may consult at Symantec site and then checking if your register contains the keys this worm creates.

Try disconnecting and reconnecting to internet when the update goes into a hang state. It worked for me...!

Remove Norton 2005. The program is outdate for 2008, use an alternative anti-virus. Norton is plagued with update issues through its entire range. Norton 2007 stall on update. Mcaffee is best bet.

I had the same problem with Norton Internet Security 2006 and the Trusted Application List when updating would "freeze up".
But i found that it does complete the update it just takes 25 minutes to do it !!!!!!!!!!

Firstly, the Trusted Applications List is huge so takes a long time. There is a list held on the server of all applications considered by Symantec as safe. All the applications in your computer are compared against the list maintained by Symantec. If you already have a lot of clutter on your computer or some bad files, this can upset the process.
If you are having trouble with any of the Live Update functions, firstly do some housekeeping.
Clear out all your temporary internet files.
Do an adware and spyware scan using AdAware or some other trusted software.
It's also advisable to do a Registry clean. If you have never done this before, you will find hundreds of bits of files left behind from old programs and settings that are no longer required.
If you have had your computer for some time and have downloaded and deleted large files, music, video and so on, check to see if your drive needs to be defragmented.
When you have done all that, restart your computer and try Live Update again. Never interrupt Live Update even if it looks as though it has frozen. You may need to leave it for half an hour or so if your computer is slow and it may not appear to be doing very much..
If you still have problems it is probably better to uninstall Norton and reinstall it. If you have already done this and it hasn't worked, you probably haven't uninstalled everything.
I would always avoid using autofix tools because they usually just hide the real cause of the problem and use a work-around.
Make a note of your Activation Key before you uninstall anything. Be sure that you also uninstall Live Update. Sometimes uninstalling the main program does not do this. You will find Live Update in Add or Remove Programs in the Control Panel. When you have done this restart your computer. Use a registry cleaner after you have uninstalled it.You shoud now be able to reinstall Norton. Be sure to have your activation key because you may need this again. If you are using several Norton programs, unfortunately you may have to reinstall all of them.
Norton can be a little unpredictable during installation but there is no reason for not being able to install it fully and satisfactorily.
