Norton Security Suites block Skype auto update

How do I set my Norton Security Suite to allow automatic updates from Skype? Alternatively, how do I manually run updates from Skype and override Norton block?

Re: Norton Security Suites block Skype auto update

Do you get any messages from Norton saying it blocked Skype? If you click help on Skype and click check for updates that'll do a manual update of Skype. I'm not sure why Norton would block Skype updates. Does Skype connect and allow you to chat?

Hello callooh

Manual updates for Skype work ok with Norton Security. Is Skype allowed into your Norton Firewall? If it's not listed, try adding it manually to the Firewall or reset the Firewall and then try using it. On another note, perhaps your Skype might need to be reinstalled. What version of Windows?

Thanks.

Re: Norton Security Suites block Skype auto update

As SGFC asked, what indications are you seeing that Norton is blocking the updates, rather than some other factor?

I appreciate all the help. It's been so long, I don't remember the details. Perhaps it didn't properly update because there was a lag. I was able to manually update from within the Skype program this morning.
