McAfee Updates Not Registering

Operating System: Windows 7

McAfee Version:

- McAfee Host Intrusion Prevention 8.0

- McAfee Agent 5.0.4

- McAfee DLP Endpoint 9.4

- McAfee File and Removable Media Protection 5.0.1

- McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 8.8.0


Currently trying to update McAfee tools and services. I clicked on the Update Security button after right-clicking the McAfee dock icon and it runs through an update security process (during which I noticed that it downloads a "PkgControls.z" file multiple times) and then says "Updates Finished". However, after closing the update program, it immediately again requires updating and it appears as if nothing has actually changed.

Any help would be much appreciated!
