How To: Clear download cache in Symantec LiveUpdate

If you suspect that you might have a corrupt update downloaded from Symantec LiveUpdate, or just because you want to clear all update downloads out of your system, you can do this from inside LiveUpdate.

When you first load LiveUpdate, click “options” and then “configure”.

LiveUpdate 005

Select the “Update Cache” tab

LiveUpdate 006

Click on “Remove All Files From Cache”

LiveUpdate 007

Once completed you will get the following message box indicating that it has successfully deleted files from download cache.

LiveUpdate 008

If you have no files to delete in the download cache, the “Remove All Files From Cache” button will be greyed out.

LiveUpdate 009

And that’s all there is too it.
