Re: Increasing Problem with Dysfunctional Software-Update Delivery Servers At McAfee?

I didn't have any pop-ups or alerts in the system, Mcafee Internet Security is the only security software installed on my computer, my windows updates are current. I have a dial-up connection, is that the problem? It was never a problem before. There is a problem with auto updates and I am not the only person who has complained. If you read through some of the threads, you will see that other people have complained about auto updates. I will just manually check for updated until my subscription expires. I see this problem is not going to be resolved.

Re: Increasing Problem with Dysfunctional Software-Update Delivery Servers At McAfee?

I have, for 5 years,

I have had an https McAfee Page as my Home Page. My Home Page  is protected from being heisted.
The first thing I do, before opening my browser, is to check for and to update my security software...and to check for and update an security update releases from Microsoft-Windows. I do date + time stamped print-screen verifications of all security updates.
I then do a Full Scan Disk, Defrag  and Back-Up of my operating system onto separate hard-drive.
I restart my computer, allowing for install and alignment of any and all security updates for my operating system.
I first check mail, then open my browser and go online and do any personal business and work.
After I complete my online business; I do a full clean-wash of online activity; followed by a Full Scan Disk, DeFrag.
No less than 2 times a week I do a Full Virus and MVT scan of my system; and throughout the last several months a Full Avert Scan. I make and store date + time stamped print-screen copies of all these security scans of my operational system.

I keep a clean and lean and security updated operating system. It is a daily, unaltered discipline.
