IS it just happening to me? As usual i set a proxy for my IE so it cannot link online since i'm using firefox.. And norton Liveupdate cannot connect to the update server once i do that. The server works fine once i allows internet connection for my IE. So is norton now working for microsoft or what?

p/s: i Just installed norton antivirus 06

First, I goto ask, how is this in any way related to ATS' website operations?

Second, nearly all apps you install on windows will use IE/Windows Proxy settings as their method to connect to the net.

This is done so that when you install an app, it can easely get online by looking at the settings the webbrowser uses.

This is actualy pritty handy sometimes.

I've been able to log alot of connection attempts and data transmits by applications that weren't supposed to do anything online like this, without any information actualy getting out on the net.

Most likely its done for some sort of compliance with the Microsoft Security Center framework in XPSP2.

Norton 2005 and SAV10 used the liveupdate to control their internet settings.
