DAT and Engine 1 DAT / Engine update
Engine not Up-to-date
Engine: Expected : 5200
Existing : 0
This looks like it may be connected with the faulty DAT. Business users are reporting that version numbers are showing up as 0.00, so this looks like the same problem. What DAT version shows up in Security Center --> About?
You may have to uninstall and re-install McAfee to fix this, but don't do that just yet.
What I see is this ... DAT Version: 6807 (under McAfee Virus Scan)
Yes, that's the faulty DAT. First try a manual update and see if DAT 6809 (or even 6811) shows up. Check the Engine version as well (it's at the end of the VirusScan section). Mine shows "5400.1158", but yours may be different. If it's still 0, your installation is out of kilter and uninstall/MCPR/re-install is probably the answer. There's a link to MCPR in "Useful Links" above.
I manually updated Security Center __even though__ it is configured to update itself automatically, and I now see DAT 6809.
This update seem to be sticking to the harddrive and the Real Time Scanning has remained on.
Problem solved though I am not as happy as I should be. What's the purpose of Automatic Updates if it doesn't work?
Thanks ... and please pass this on.
This dat issue had many faces it showed itself as about 6 or more issues 1 was auto update failed to work I assume.
I would delete the 6809 folder and re update. Just a feeling I have that updating 6807 with 6807 present is a tad unstable.
Go to program files/mcafee/virusscan/dat/6809 and delete 6809 folder and update.
Whew, it was another cluster on my small farm. After 2 hours I'm now good.
I deleted that updated folder, ran Update again, and now have 6812.0 at the location C:\Program Files\McAfee\VirusScan\DAT\
Problem solved and then some. Thanks again.
