Updates Available? NIS2008

Right so everytime I start up my pc and my laptop I have this message come up.

Updates Available
Would you like to run LiveUpdate now to install the available updates?
Yes No

The thing is I done it the first time but still get this message come up everytime I start my pc and laptop, and I highly doubt Norton is turning out updates everyday... So as you can guess it gets annoying.

Does anyone know how to stop this?

You can delete the entry

You can use Spybot-S&D or WinPatrol to delete the said entry in the startup. You can also use regedit to permanently delete it (just be careful in using registry editor).
