Can't get Enterprise to update after re-install

I had to remove Enterprise 8.0 on my home PC (have take home CD from work) because I couldn't get the McAfee to enable upon boot-up even though I had set it up to do that. So I figured I'd uninstall and then re-install.

Well I've had nothing but problems. I install it, but can't get it to update. So far I've recieved message in the McAfeee Update window that:

File delta.ini is corrupt. Downloading file again
Error occurred while verifying
File is corrupt. Downloading complete file again.

Then it just sits there for several minutes and seems to be hung up.

What do you folks recommend?

I also have the 8.5 version which my company has recently moved to.

Try it with your firewall temporarily disabled and see if it makes it work.
