How do i remove symantec live update?

I want to remove this program but cannot find the uninstall and its not
listed in the list? I tried to remove the directorys manually but it wouldn't
let me? Is this anti virus software? What is it? I already have live one
care. I have reason to believe this software is preventing me from running
chkdsk and defrag. Any help much appreciated.

Re: How do i remove symantec live update?

If you just want to stop Live update run the script below each time you boot
your PC
Cut and past to notepad and save the file as 'Stop LiveUpdate Service.vbs'
Place a shortcut on your desktop

' Begin script
' Stop LiveUpdate Service.vbs
' Example VBScript to Stop Services
' Author Guy Thomas http://computerperformance.co.uk/
' Version 1.3 - March 20th 2005

Option Explicit
Dim objShell, intShortSleep, intLongSleep
Dim strService
Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

' Values set

strService = " "" Automatic LiveUpdate Scheduler"" "
intShortSleep = 1500
intLongSleep = 5500

' Cmd prompt opened
objShell.Run "cmd"
Wscript.Sleep intShortSleep

' Service stopped with 'Net' command
objShell.SendKeys "net stop" & " ""Automatic LiveUpdate Scheduler"" "

Thanks for sharing that script with us; I just tried it but Norton AV script
blocking issued a warning and I allowed it. Too bad there is no way to
disable the service from starting automatically at bootup, short of
uninstalling LU completely. I tried disabling the service previously to no
avail.

Which Symantec app/version do you have installed? You should be able to disable
automatic live update in any version.
If you have issues with it try setting these in Services to Manual:

Automatic LiveUpdate Scheduler
LiveUpdate
LiveUpdate Notice Service
LiveUpdate Notice Service Ex

Re: How do i remove symantec live update?

I just use the script to kill this particular service after I download the
updates each day. Once the service is stopped I no longer get those ugly
slow downs as Live Update (if not stopped) periodically keeps checking for
more updates throughout the day.

Re: How do i remove symantec live update?

Automatic LiveUpdate runs at first connection to the web.
If updates are available it downloads/installs them.
It checks every 5 minutes as long as updates remain available to download/install.
If no updates are available it resets to the default check of every 4 hrs (240 mins).
The time frequency to check is user configurable (at least for 2007) via Control
Panel > Symantec LiveUpdate > Automatic LiveUpdate tab > Update Frequency.
I have set mine to check every 12 hrs (720 mins).

Take note that after changing the update frequency it does not go into effect until
either the next live update runs or the Automatic LiveUpdate services is stopped and
restarted.

Re: How do i remove symantec live update?

Wish that was the case with my PC, but even if all updates have been
downloaded it still goes out and checks for updates at random times (240 is
my default also) during the day.
