I would recommend upgrading directly to HIP 8.0 patch 2, which was just posteed externally.
Host IPS 8.0 Patch 2 for Windows Available!
Host IPS 184.108.40.2063 Extension Update for ePO is available!
To download HIPS 8.0 Patch 2 and the extension update, go to the McAfee downloads site at: http://www.mcafee.com/us/downloads/downloads.aspx.

Thanks for that bgable, ill give this a try. With HIPS8 P0 and HIPS8 P1 the upgrade only worked maybe 40% of the time so hopefully this has a higher success rate otherwise I may be waiting for a full hardware cycle to get everyone on 8!
