Mcafee Agent upgrade by itself

Hi Guys

I wonder if someone can give me some insight to this.

I have been using the unsupported version of Mcafee Agent 4.0 for legacy systems, and I have noticed that three devices has upgraded to version 4.6 that was in my current repository on ePO 4.6.1, however there is no explanation as to why they have upgraded because I have not setup any tassk to upgrade these devices.

I have noticed that in the epoagent3000 folder on these devices, there was a copy of the 4.6 agent, however on my other devices, this framepkg.exe was an older version.

any comments as to how this could happen.

Re: Mcafee Agent upgrade by itself

Look at the Agent install log on these machines and see if they were deployed from your ePO or were they manually installed from another Admin? Also do you have an old GPO or batch file in your environment that may have been still active?
