Default Auto updates are failing

Auto updates are failing after installing in a loop? The stupid thing is happening several times a day. If I turn of auto updates the stupid Norton goes happy several times a minute, with you have one thing that needs fixing.
Any one got any ideas on how to fix this problem? Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Default Re: Auto updates are failing

Forget automatic updates and do it yourself? And trash norton while you are at it? At least, that's what I would do.

have you tried to turn off Norton for the updates?
