Change time for downloading updates?

When I had McAfee version 8.51, I could set the time McAfee would download virus definition updates. Now, it downloads and installs at 3 pm. I'd like it to be at a different time, say the middle of the night. How can I do that? I've got Security Center 9.15, VirusScan 13.15.

Re: Change time for downloading updates?

Double-click the taskbar icon to open SecurityCenter

Click Advanced Menu (bottom)

Click Configure (left)

With SecurityCenter highlighted at top left

Click Advanced (right)

Click Update Options (top left)

Change yolur options at the right.

You can't set an actual time for updates but you could have it alert you or simply turn it off.

If you pick the latter you will have to manually check at least once per day or it will start throwing up errors.
