Do you experience any kind of pop-ups or Alert regarding the Virus/spyware in the computer?
Hi and thanks for your reply.
Since I posted (February 5th) I got updates the 6th and yesterday, february 8th.
Probably McAfee is not releasing daily updates? if so, then there is nothing wrong with my software. Please let me know.
They are daily, or at least supposed to be daily, however I've found the odd day to be missed which isn't all that unusual from past experience.
Yeah, the missing updates on odd days is strange... I will be checking carefully for any other strange behaviours and will let you know.
Well you can imagine how unpredictable my updates are as I'm constantly rebooting between 2 x XP Pro SP3's, Vista Ult SP1 and Windows 7 Beta, although the latter isn't yet compatible with McAfee, or should it be the other way around.
Hello again. Just to let you know that everything is working OK now. McAfee updates daily and yesterday I got a major update for: Security Center, ViruScan, Firewall, etc.
Thanks to all for your replies!
Glad to hear it.
