    new DAT file?

      I have yet to have a new DAT file download and install on my computer today, Friday Jan 29th.

      When I run an update check it tells me that my programs are up to date.

      the latest DAT on my computer is 5875 installed Thursday afternoon.

      Is this a problem I should be worried about?  Or has McAfee simply not put a new DAT out on the servers.

      I am on the east coast of the USA.  It seems that the DAT is put out at different times each day.

      Have others not yet had a new DAT install today either?

          DAT5876 just installed on my computer.

          I find it annoying that the updates are put out at different times every day.

          It would be easier if they were put out on the servers at a consistant time each day.

          But I am grateful that the updates are occuring each day.
