    Everything was going fine until today. Suddenly, I couldn't update
    NAV 2004 and NSW 2003. So I deleted both and re-installed NAV 2003
    and NSW 2003. That didn't work. I deleted both again and left Winfax
    and PCAnywhere. They would update. I then re-installed NAV 2003 &
    NSW 2003. No update. Then I deleted NAV and NSW and installed them
    individually. No update. Then I deleted, downloaded and re-installed
    LiveUpdate. That didn't work. I downloaded the latest virus
    definitions manually, installed them, and ran a complete virus scan.
    Clean. I switched LiveUpdate from Interactive Mode to Express Mode.
    Same error message, with the additional information that the Host was
    not found. I switched off my firewall. No change. Any ideas? Could
    this be a Symantec problem? Oh, and I can't run the anti-virus scan
    from the Symantec site. (I know, dump Norton. Humor me.)

    Did you uninstall Winfax or pcAnywhere?

    WinFax can be a pill sometimes. When I install it, I try to make sure
    everything else is loaded before Winfax.

    No. Because everything was working fine. Then it stopped. Could it
    have been a WinDoctor scan that did it?

    I guess you must have tried your scan in safe mode.
    My Norton 2004 locks up sometimes but usuallly works in safe mode.
