    Confused about DAT file updating

      Hi all,

      I have what is potentially a stupid question. I noticed a couple of times that my DAT files haven't updated in several days, rather than everyday the way I assume they should. But when I try to 'force' the updates (by using the update option), it doesn't always work -- for instance, right now my DAT files updated on 3/28 to 5567. The McAfee website says that the latest DAT file is 5569, released today. So I used the "update" button, but a box popped up in the lower right corner saying "Your programs are up to date".

      In my opinion, they aren't up to date -- not if they're 2 files behind. Can somebody help me solve this issue?

      Thanks.
