McAfee EPO 4.5 Policy problems/ Mouse Focus/

We have just been updated to McAfee EPO 4.5 and are having a few teething problems to say the least.

1 - We have a single policy which is applied to all machines, it sits at 'my organisation'. We have updated the 'policy enforcement interval(minutes)' to '180' as we have been experiencing problems with mouse losing focus from the current window. This was previously set to 5 minutes. 'The agent to server communication' has also been changed to '180' minutes. The strange thing is these changes are not sticking on our McAfee Agents version ''. They are flicking back between the old policy settings and the new policy settings. I cant see for the life of me where the old policy settings can be coming from.

2 - Does anyone know why the mouse is losing focus every 5 minutes as if we could solve this it would help initially. I have noticed it keeps doing a 'on access scan' when this happens and the shield changes.

3 - two of our distributed repositories are also failing to update and we have no idea why this is happening.

The virus scanner is 8.7i (

Can anyone help at all?
