I have an XP machine service pack 3 running Total Protection 2010. Whenever the auto-update process runs or I manually kick it off, it fails to update the dat file. When I ping downloads.mcaffe.com i get 127.0.0.1. I don't have a entry in my hosts file, so i'm guessing I have a virus. Any help would be appreciated.
Setting the dns back to obtain automatically was able to fix the update problem. After the update, I scanned the machine and removed 5 viruses. Thanks.
