    I have Norton 2004. After downloading the latest virus DAT file (exe
    format), I tried to run it to update the virus definitions. I get an
    error "The Temprory directory is not valid"

    This does not happen on my other PC.

    This occasionally happens and usually Norton receives heaps of reports and
    has the glitch fixed within 24 hours.

    I always use the daily virus definition updater on their website:

    I'm still running Norton System Works 2003 but I have a question about your
    NAV 2004.

    Doesn't NAV 2004 support Symantec's Liveupdate? That's how I get my virus
    defs. Haven't downloaded a DEF file in several years (had System Works 2000
    before this).

    These ARE the files causing the error message! Any idea how they fix
    the glitch?

    Yes - except the virus live updater runs once a week as far as I can
    tell. One may wish to update manually more often when there is a lot
    of virus activity.

    If you are using a broadband connection LU checks servers every 4 hours!
