Try this--Click on "Computer and Files" you'll see "Ignore" option on the right hand box..click "Ignore".
If the problem persists then uninstall,re-install.
Hey, Well, I don't see an ignore box in Comp/files unless its some where in the advanced settings.

Check your system clock for accuracy, both time and timezone-wise.
Try running McAfee Virtual Technican to see if it will fix the issue.
Or...If Security Center still says The detection signature file is between 8 and 29 days old and has a yellow Protection Status, continue to the instructions below:
- Browse to C:\Program Files\McAfee\VirusScan.
- Right-click the DAT folder and select Rename.
- Change the folder name to DATold.
- If you receive an access denied message:
- Open Task Manager (press CTRL+SHIFT+ESCAPE).
- Right-Click mcshield.exe, and select End Process.
- Rename the DAT folder to DATold.
- In SecurityCenter, click Fix again.
- Restart your computer.
A new virus definition file will be downloaded to your system. This is a large file, and may take some time to download. After the new definition file is downloaded, (when the spinning icon disappears) the Protection Status will go back to green.
OK, so yesterday it wouldn’t load a new file. Tried several times including re-booting and Synchronizing time with time.windows.com. Didn’t work.
Booted back their today and it updated correctly.
Thanks. Go figure.
Thanks for the “force a new detection file” scenario, I’ll save that.
It was probably just doing it to annoy you (and me)...! Glad it's fixed, whatever it was.
