You can schedule LiveUpdate to occur automatically at a specified time interval to ensure that Symantec Protection Engine always has the most current definitions. When you install a valid antivirus content license or URL content license, Symantec Protection Engine automatically tries to perform a LiveUpdate. By default, Symantec Protection Engine is configured to perform a LiveUpdate every two hours.
When LiveUpdate is scheduled, it runs at the specified time interval that is relative to the LiveUpdate base time. The default LiveUpdate base time is the time that Symantec Protection Engine was installed. You can change the LiveUpdate base time by editing the configuration file. If you change the scheduled LiveUpdate interval, the interval adjusts based on the LiveUpdate base time.
