You were login as a limited user and everytime you click Run LiveUpdate in Norton Internet Security 2009, it keeps saying that you need admin rights to run the update. But you don't want to give the user an admin rights.

The workaround is to

  • open Registry Editor and navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\
  • you will see InstalledApps & IntelligentUpdater from the left hand side
  • right-click in each folder and select Permissions... then add the username of the one with limited account
  • close Registry Editor
  • login as the user with limited account, then try to click Run LiveUpdate and you should be able to update your Norton Internet Security.
