Mine is 6461 also. That web page goes up in advance of the release and unless people want to install updates manually, it's simply a case of waiting for them to filter through to all the hundreds of servers dotted around the globe.
It's best to wait as the update that is coming through the pipe may contain more than just VirusScan updates. There are several important patches released lately or about to be released and they aren't included in the manual download.
Many thanks for the information.
The only reason I resorted to "manual" update (I did follow your link, and have it bookmarked in case of future problems) was that McAfee told me there were updates, but it wouldn't install them - "Home page" showed "X Updates: Available" with the "X" and "Updates" in red.
I'm on a SLOW broadband connection, and I'm not online every day, so I may go a week between updates - thought that might have been part of the original problem.
I'll take your advice and wait for McAfee to tell me there are updates and hope for the best.
P.S. What frustrated me the most was pressing the "Get Support" button and getting "An Error Occurred", which was less than helpful.
What you could do is change the update settings to alert you first if you haven't already.
Click Updates on the home screen (if anything else is showing dismiss the message)
