I have a computer that is not connected to the Internet. I update Symantec Endpoint Protection's Antivirus and Antispyware Protection manually. The Proactive Threat Protection always says "Waiting for Updates." How can I update PTP without an Internet connection?

It looks like you can copy this directory (or its Windows Vista/7 equivalent) from an updated machine to your other machine.

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Symantec\SyKnApps

I'm not sure if you have to shut down the SEP during the process, and don't have it available to test, but that looks like a reasonable solution.
