Liveupdate had an error updating the virus definitions
I tried reinstalling , removing previous settings . Then reboot your system and see if Live Update runs without errors.
It worked on my W7-SP1 32-bit system, without the latest patch tuesday Windows Updates..
I then ran liveupdate again and it downloaded some more updates but, once again failed to complete, but once again actually applied another patch.
I finally ran liveupdate a third time and it said that there were 2 updates available but it didn't download them. Every time I ran liveupdate after that I just got the "failed to complete" message.
We will update this thread as more information becomes available. Sorry, Dave Coleman Symantec Corporation UPDATE: This issue should now be resolved.
Lets see if it keeps working on the next few weeks!

This all started yesterday when I tried to open my vault (NIS version 220.127.116.11 running on Windows 8.1 laptop) and it failed to open after I had entered my vault password.
