Mcafee 8 0i not updating
Here are my findings: -Autoupdate continues to run at the scheduled time, except no updates are downloaded See log clipping - note how Feb 2 shows more entries than Feb 3 or Feb 4 -I successfully applied a Feb 17 Super DAT, but Autoupdate still failed to update virus signatures past that day (Feb 17).
-I tried Control Panel - Repair, but that also failed to fix the problem. This leads me to believe that the software was not disabled because it reached the end of its "product life", but rather it got damaged somehow.
Have you tried modifying the schedule to the current time to see what is actually happening when the update takes place?
If you manually select "Update", does the update fail or succeed?
I'd recommend you call Mc Afee and get the required help directly from them. Txs Viru Scan - I installed the VSE onto a brand new machine. Mc Afee should give plenty of warning if the product was going end of life and it wouldn't happen in the middle of the month. Bloatware that is more expensive than anything else and for me at least, provides more problems than any other, out of proportion to the number of systems I work on. I know on the 19th, they released a 62MB update which caused a few problems as the updates are normally only 300K Is there anything in the Event Viewer or in the logs to show any problems ?
Cheers Si Basically, you need to update to VSE 8.5 and the problem will go away. This essentially upgrades the CMA to the 3.6.x version that is not EOL, like the 3.5.x version that is giving the autoupdate problems.
The Home Screen gives you all the information you need at a glance.
And you're never more than one click away from it, which eliminates popup windows and makes for easy navigation.
My Mc Afee is "Installing updates" for the past two days and has only achieved 50% installation. Prior to that, and occasionally still, it tells me that "Realtime scanning if off" I have never switched this off, and even when I click "turn on" it turns off again spontaneously. Thank you It will, it was just stuck on an update Mary If it has stopped, it is now alright.Automatic scans and updates occur when your PC is idle.All of which means, Mc Afee Total Protection won’t slow you down.I haven't tried that myself, but you can do this at https://com/apps/downloads/my_products/login.asp? Sorry, also that VSE8.0i is officially EOL as from December 31, 2009, so plan that upgrade now so you won't be in the same boat again.I've experienced the exact same problem with several computers except mine all stopped updating on Feb 2, 2009.
