Old patches/updates for vintage software\norton antivirus virus definitions FOLLOW-UP

So Since posting that on here I have been able to find the virus definitions for Norton AntiVirus 2000, and Symantec AntiVirus for Macintosh 4.5.

I have also found a definitions file for Norton AntiVirus 5.0 for Macintosh as well but the definitions file dates to 2001. The definitions file I am looking for is the latest one dated to 2003.

I have also found the Symantec AntiVirus for Macintosh 4.5 definitions file. However, when replacing the existing definitions file with the newer definition file, the program refused to load with a message telling me the new virus definitions file is invalid. I tested this in both Basilisk II and SheepShaver. Both gave me the same message

I read somewhere that there is an patch to the existing program that updates the existing program to version 4.5.1, Which might make the new virus definitions load properly, but I hope it's just an emulator/virtual machine problem.

Lastly, I am still looking for the RESCUEME.EXE patch for Norton AntiVirus 4.0 that expands the rescue disk set to more than 3 disks AND the patch that updates SAM 4.5 to version 4.5.1.

The patch can be found here

If anyone can find a website that hosts old updates and patches to abandonware software programs, specifically Norton AntiVirus Updates and Updated Virus Definitions, I will be very grateful.
