McAfee Security software uses automated updates to keep the application and resource files up to date. There are three basic types of updates: DAT updates, minor application updates, and new version releases.
DAT updates are the most common update, and are usually updated at least once a day.
Minor application updates resolve issues and/or compatibility problems.
New versions are the least frequent, and include enhancements and/or changes to the applications.
To provide more inputs on this can you provide the following information;
What is the type of internet connection ?
How old is the computer ? Any recent changes for the computer ?
do you have any other security software installed in the computer?
Please run McAfee virtual technician from http://mvt.mcafee.com and post me with the session id so that we could diagnose the problem.
