Virus Definitions file

I'm wanting to put my virus definitions file on a drive separate from where I installed McAfee, does anyone know how to do this?   Basically, I have McAfee installed on my C: drive.  I want the definitions file to be on D: and to update on that drive from now on.  Any help is much appreciated.  Thanks.

Re: Virus Definitions file

Hello,

There is no such option to segregate the virus definition files to some other drive/location. However, you shall always find them under this location:

C:\Program Files\McAfee\VirusScan\DAT\

Re: Virus Definitions file

You can locate them under the DAT folder, there should be another folder it would be in the name of 6091.0 (as of today). Inside 6090 folder there would be 3 files:

1. avvclean.dat

2. avvnames.dat

3. avvscan.dat
