    does the computer clock time/date effect updates/protection

      Hi,

      I am hoping you can settle a debate for me. I was messing on my brothers computer (in retaliation to something else he did on mine ) and changed his clock/calendar back a month or so. He is arguing that by changing his clock he was open to viruses as macaffee wouldn't have updated corrected/checked for updates as it would be a month behind. I am arguing that Macafee updater wouldn't have cared and just checked against its own internal database and would just continue to stay uptodate. It wasn't a system restore or anything so wouldn't have rolled back any changes, simply the clock/calendar being wrong.

       

      can anyone settle the arguement for me?

       

      thanks
