    Regarding Norton: Use the Intelligent Updater:
    http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/defs.download.html Once NAV
    is installed on your friend's computer, run that little exe file and it
    will update the definitions.

    Just download the *single* exe file and burn it to the CD along with the
    other stuff you're taking to your friend's place. Once you've got NAV
    installed, drop that file onto his desktop or into a folder somewhere and
    double-click it. Give it a few moments and it will update the NAV
    definitions. And by the way, Intelligent Updater is a great way to always
    have the most up-to-date definitions- Live Update only updates once or
    twice a week, while the Intelligent Updater definitions are updated daily.

    Since your task is apparently to clean some unknown nasties from your
    frien's system, you may also want to take CWShredder with you:

    Stinger tool: http://vil.nai.com/vil/stinger/

    I've been asked to pop around a friends later, with my disc of adaware and
    norton anti virus etc etc to clean sweep a bug off their pc, if i can.

    I have adaware and norton anti virus on CD, but if i install it on their PC,
    they will both need updating, their PC does not normally connect very well
    to the internet, if at all.

    I have broadband and all the neccessary programs at my place at home. How
    can i get the updates onto the same disc so that i can run the latest
    definitions on their PC?

    What would be the procedure for downloading the updates to a disc, and then
    the procedure for adding those updates into the programs myself?

    Adaware and Norton 2003 should do the trick i think.

    I've since downloaded the latest ad-aware update (zipped, then unzipped, but
    still shows as the same file - reflist.ref does that sound right?)
    And thats now on the disc alongside the aaw6, now all i need to know is how
    to drag and drop it into the right place once I've installed adaware on
    their system?

    I would like to find a similar way of getting an anti virus latest files run
    on their system too.

    I was just looking at that, reading the instructions it wants me to make
    four floppy discs?! I just saved the 4 files onto the same folder that I'll
    be burning the fix/utility CD from. 3 of the files are zip files so i
    downloaded winzip as well, just incase they don't have it on theirs to unzip
    the files. I think once i run the first .exe file it prompts for the
    location of the zip files to finish installing the latest definitions?

    I think you are reffering to method 1, which it advises me here in the
    instructions page, not to use, because the pc will not have any internet
    access when i get over there.


    Method 1: I can connect to the Internet
    This is the best choice for all individual Norton and Symantec antivirus
    users who can download files through the Internet either directly or through
    their corporate network.

    To download the Intelligent Updater and update the virus definitions...





    Method 2: I cannot connect to the Internet
    Use this choice if the computer does not have Internet access or you would
    like to update another computer that does not have Internet access. To
    successfully complete these steps, you will need four blank floppy disks.

    To download and install the virus definitions using four floppy disks...

    Norton Intelligent Updater package:
    http://www.symantec.com/avcenter/download/pages/US-N95.html
    Download the file named "20040710-007-x86.exe"
    http://www.symantec.com/avcenter/download/us-files/20040710-007-x86.exe

    After downloading, copy to a CD, or Zip disk, transfer to friends computer,
    and double-click it to update NAV.
