its a harmless updater for norton antivirus. Its made by symantec who is a trusted company. However if you dont have norton it could be malware. S. Kirby
Apparently this was used by 2 copanies - 1 to "slam" my phone bill and the other to write an e-check on my checking account! Since I no longer use (& have uninstalled completely) Norton products off my windows machine, AND I set a firewall with an "ask Permission" setting (most are simply higher settings) and I'm still seeing this, as well as my computer turning itself on (another issue), I'm scraping Windows altogether and going to LINUX. Windows is SO vunerable and insecure, AND there are SO many viruses, scams, etc. winblows is no longer worth it AND LINUX is free for everyone!!! :) anonymous

liveupdate scheduler for Symantec products
Runs in the background even when automatic live update is disabled. Seems to run every hour; noticably slows fast system creating long pauses. paintdog
I've unistalled Norton because it was so useless, but this file won't go away!
as said, automatic update, but personally I have it disabled, so I don't know why it still runs. Mikey V

automatic live update scheduler. Supposedly can be turned off, but whenever I do, my computer reboots minutes later. J
If you want to disable AluSchedulerSvc.exe permanently dont just end process in task manager, it will be back every time you restart your machine, instead go to: C:\Program Files\Symantec\LiveUpdate doubleclick on LuConfig open Automatic Live Update tab and unmark Use Automatic Live Update (be aware that from now on you need manually check for update in norton products, just click on Live Update in your product ), hope this helps. kizo973
To permantently disable go to your C: disk , then program files, then Symantec, then LIVE UPDATE, then AluSchdulerSvc.exe and delete.
Automatic Live Update Scheduler Service. I no longer use Norton/Symantic so I don't want this file. However I cannot delete it from Task Manager. Problem is if you have anything from Symantic on your computer, Symantic thinks they own your computer and wants to dictate how you operate it. lk
I unstalled Norton 360 but this thing keeps lurking in the background and want to run every 5 minutes. I t will not let me delete it because of it's protections. It stops anything I'm doing until I tell it to SHUT UP ! Someone please tell my how to kill the DARN thing. Dennis Noethens
To remove the file highlight it, right click on it and then "send it to...." Recycle bin, Incinerator etc. Steve
Symantec Live Updater, to the "Anonymous" person below me, don't blame Windows for your lack of protection, maybe if you didnt uninstall Norton you wouldnt have had your information stolen...lol...its a harmless file, to see if its malware simply check to see if its in the Symantec foler or System32 folder, if its in the latter, its malware.

it freezes my pc
If you have this; it probably means you have Norton Antivirus/Internet Security installed. This means: You've got the Wrong antivirus installed. Download Avast! or NOD32. Chiphead
It has been exceedingly difficult to rid myself of Norton Antivirus 2006 (I've switched to the free Avast). To prevent this particular service from being run at startup, I went to \Control Panel\Administrative Tools\Services, found the entry for Automatic LiveUpdate and disabled it. I found the other Norton entries with starting words of LiveUpdate and Symantec. In addition, there were several startup programs I disabled at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run (I suffix .exe with the word Obsolete), besides which I disabled two entries in \Control Panel\Scheduler  See also: Link Csaba
dont have any norton products but its running, con internet Arthur Clifford
Aluschedulersvc.exe is Automatic LiveUpdate Scheduler Service for Symantec anti-virus software. It is not DANGEROUS at all. Itís just there to update your virus definitions so Symantec AV can protect your computer from all DANGEROUS virusesí floating around the internet, or your hard drive. I no longer have Norton AV installed on my computer, but I do use other Norton products (Ghost). However, I do not need the service running to keep Ghost updated. Therefore, I have disabled the software from running in SERVICES, (\Control Panel\Administrative Tools\Services). Rick
