RE: host of errors

I'm having all sorts of problems too, starting today.

Woke up, turned on my PC, and it says McAfee can't install the latest update, please reinstall VirusScan.

I get on the live-chat with McAfee support, he does some stuff, still no help, tells me to restart my computer.

Now I just tried reinstalling all of McAfee and it STILL won't work. It keeps saying I have to reinstall VirusScan, meanwhile I have no Virus protection.

The Virtual Technician stopped working and now when I go the the McAfee support page for live chat, it doesn't even load. The page says "Connection Was Reset". Maybe a whole bunch of people are having the same problem?

RE: host of errors

Yes, seems to be an issue with the latest DAT (5777). Going into safe mode and so on didn't help, so I guess it's up to McAfee to get it fixed ASAP.

RE: host of errors

yeah I just got off the line w/ a support tech (chat) and he says they're having problems on their server side. Should be fixed in 3-4 hours.

Wish I knew that before I tried reinstalling the whole damned program :mad:

===================

McAfee just restarted my computer... the build number on Security Center and Virus Scan has been updated. The dat version is still at 5776 same as yesterday.

RE: host of errors

An issue was reported on the last update and it was throwing up an error message stating that users were not protected. this issue was later confirmed as resolved .

If you suspect that your machine still has the issue please try to restart the computer and then right click on McAfee icon and select Update.

Allow the update to run on the machine and once its done and states that the machine is protected reboot the computer.

If in case this fails please run the McAfee Virtual technician and contact Technical support with the Virtual technician session id for the technician to diagnose the issue.

RE: host of errors

I'm no longer getting the red error message when I try to manually get the dat update. But I still am at Dat 5776 (10/19/09)

Has the next Dat come out yet?
