Symantec Antivirus Live Update has a problem of hang at 99% in Windows Vista. The live update is launched, download is done, and after I pressed Finish button, it gave a small pop-up window showing a progress-bar saying “Updating Virus Protection Files”, this progress bar hangs at 99% and remains at 99% for ever, I have to manually end the process, it becomes not responding.
I tried to find a way out, and it worked for me, in this post I am going to share the method by which I solved this issue.
I follows the below three steps, it fixed my problem:
Update Live Update Applicaiton
Download the latest version of Symantec Live update Application from the link below:
After this, install this version over your existing version of Symantec Live Update.

Goto Configuration > Tamper Protection and Turn off the Tamper Protection by Un-checking “Enable Tamper Protection” as shown below:
After this, restart the computer, and if you are lucky like me, it will not hang. If you still face this problem, leave a comment below.
