In answer to your original header question, support stopped on Dec 31, 2011 - that includes DAT's.   See KB69579.

You can of course manually update DAT's from the downloads page but it represents a serious security risk as the software itself will no longer be updated and therefore should not be used.

Time to go with a more recent and supported version.
