It updates every day usually, sometimes misses a beat and then catches up, but it averages once a day for VirusScan.
OK thanks. I thought I was imagining things for a while. I take it that it doesn't have annoying interrupting updates like Symantec's infamous 'live updater' then?
I think it is a good idea to have daily short unobtrusive updates. Norton used to drive me crazy when it took over my computer to update! :mad:
The more I see of McAfee, the more I like it. happy
I'm not familiar with Norton's updating mechanisms I'm afraid.
You can control how it updates by doing the following...
Double-click the taskbar icon to open Security Center
Click Advanced Menu (bottom left)
Click Configure (left)
With Security Center highlighted at top left
Click Advanced (right)
Click Update Options at left.
OK thanks. What I meant to ask was, is the daily update the only update?
Usually it's just the DAT update daily for VirusScan, but occasionally other applications may update too, usually it all comes in at once so shouldn't be too obtrusive.
SiteAdvisor for instance, if you use it in your browser, updates silently.
OK thanks. happy
Glad to help.
