Raghu -

I disagree about Norton, wrt Intelligent Updater *only*.  I have
no data on the verification mechanism for LiveUpdate, but for IntelligentUpdater, for example:

http://www.sarc.com/avcenter/download/pages/US-N95.html

the MD5 hash is on the download page right under the link.

Can't speak to the other issues, or vendors.  Never tried to
address them.  I just check the MD5 and run.
