Update NIS 2010 offline

This issue has been solved. See solution.

   I have NIS 2010 and want to update it. I have an internet connection that is not so fast and it would not be possible for me to update NIS as the first update is huge. So I wanted to use another PC with a high internet connection to download full virus databases from symantec. Then use the the downloaded updates from a flash carrier to update NIS on my PC. Then with my internet connection, I would download the daily updates which will be possible with my internet connection.
   I wanted to know if that was possible beacause it's possible for other security software. And how much is the first update and is there a utility to download and saves the updates in a specific folder which can stop and resume downloading. Just like Kaspersky what! But Kaspersky servers are damn slow.
Thanks very much in advance. Waiting for a quick reply.
IF I can use Norton to update that way, then NORTON FOR LIFE

 Although it is a NAV question however the answer to your question is
Download the xxxxxxxxi32.exe file from

Save it anywhere flash disk etc run it on your computer.
For resumable download you can use DAP ( Download accelerator Plus ) its a freeware available on internet.
