Known Patching Issue - Norton & SONAR

Technical Support
UPDATE:
Norton's telling users to run LiveUpdate to receive their fix for this issue.


Hi everyone.

We see many users have been experiencing issues downloading the tools patch this morning (which would then allow them to download 4.1), however SONAR is flagging it and blocking the download.

Essentially, you'll want to temporarily disable SONAR to patch, then re-enable it.

SONAR doesn't work off of known malware, etc, but instead works off of the number of users who have downloaded the file.

The patch just came out, SONAR recognizes that few people (with Norton) have downloaded the file, so it blocks it.

I'm running the corporate edition of what you're running, and nothing flagged for me, installed nicely with no blips.

It is safe. I guarantee it. :)
Zardin you are an f'n genius thank you sir! I'm glad someone finally just gave a straight answer on how to work around the issue...... disabled sonar and now we are installing!
Thanks Res and Zar!
Awesome job!

Zardin gave instructions. He deserves thanks. :)

I run Symantec Endpoint Protection here at work, and it doesn't have SONAR built into it (despite Norton being made by Symantec), so I wasn't sure on instructions for disabling.. :)
Thank you kindly, it was already beginning to bug me since I already had to restart. I'll be sure to turn it back on once its done. thanks Ressie!
Also Zardin don't forget if that dont work you can just go ahead and turn it all off by the 1st on @ top in norton.. when i turned off just Sonar just itself still kept on getting the error till i turned Auto-Protect off.. So if your still having some issues people do the same thing and make sure Auto Protect is off. Though people thank you for everything :).
yup turned sonar off and it works fine

just go into your norton settings > antivirus > turn sonar off


Thank you so much!!!!
Seems like its been helping alot of ppl. However, I dont have Norton. I have McAfee. And been having the same issue.

:(
i turned off my protection but it still closes the launcher for wow when it gets like 1/4 way done how do i prevent this or acually get this patch downloaded?
I dont have any anti virus programs installed, and my firewall is turned off, but still have this problem :(
I have Microsoft Essentials. I found that if I turned off the Real Time Protection, the patch loaded with no prob. Just remember to turn it back on when it's finished.
