mfe runtime.dat?

Hello,
I noticed when I get updates for my viruscan that unlike my wife's three entries in
her dat folder I receive an extra dat file that is named mferuntime.dat . What is it
and should she receive it also? We both have the same Mcafee products installed.
Thanks

Could you run the McAfee virtual technicain on your machine and post back the session id?

P.S: even my machine has that on it.. happy

Hello ,
Would one of the techs be so kind as to get back with
me on my request for an answer to my question about what
mfe runtime.dat is. I know this a user forum but i figure someone
will know the answer to this.
Thanks in advance,

the 'mferuntime.dat' file is the temp dat file after auto update, it should be safe to delete it to save disk space.

mferuntime dat is not a temp file and must not be deleted!

Its a file that is used to improve the performance of the scan by storing some settings


Addendum: However these files get replaced or removed by the products themselves when deemed unsuitable by the application. These files are like a cache for the scan application.
