Sending new virus information to McAfee

Just recently, McAfee has detected a trojan:

Detection Name: Generic Downloader.q

I have clicked on it's name to see what it was, but there was no information available according to the site. So, I decided that I would send it to McAfee. But when I clicked "send", after a while, it said that it could not send it due to a network problem.
I've done the same to a few other viruses in the past, but it said that the file was too big to carry.
Why is this?

Would anyone please assist me in this matter?

RE: Sending new virus information to McAfee


If you have difficulties in uploading those infected file, you can also try to login to this website and register with your email address and password.

Once you are done with the registration you can upload those files to our McAfee Avert department without any issues.
