Norton Internet Security 2004 is broken, beware!

Just installed NIS 2004 on 2 Win98 machines, ran a successful Live
Update on both, and then when 'educating' users to show them how to run
a manual Live Update (which is something i always suggest users do
periodically anyway) NIS2004 reports the update list as being corrupt.

Symantec KB at http://makeashorterlink.com/?V35521C46 documents this,
but Symantec do not have a fix!

No doubt, as Live Update is on the whole an automated task, this will go
unnoticed by many users who will think they are up-to-date and
protected, when in actual fact their machines are becoming potential
virus harvesters.
