    McAfee unable to update

      I went on a two-week vacation, and came back tonight to McAfee refusing to update itself.  I had DAT 6806, and upon doing a system restore to the day before I left reverted to DAT 6805.  The problem persists. 

       

      I suspect that it's related in some fashion to https://community.mcafee.com/thread/47768?start=0&tstart=0, but the fact that I did a system restore to an earlier DAT leaves me skeptical.  I did run the MVT, and it did not resolve the issue. 

       

      To be specific about the problem, McAfee's autoupdate is unable to update.  When I try to force an update, it checks for updates successfully and then fails when it tries to download them.  Attempts to verify my subscription also fail, despite my subscription being valid until the 30th of December.  This is not a critical issue at the moment, but will become so if not addressed.  Is my only recourse to uninstall McAfee and then reinstall?
