    McAfee Antivirus unable to update

    johnnycc

      Hello,

       

      Recently the McAfee Antivirus always pop up with a "You computer is at risk" message indicating that update is available, but after "Check for Updates" it will shows that it's up-to-date.

      This problem have remains for several weeks and I have try many solutions on McAfee forum but none of them can fix it.

       

      When I click the "About" button it shows that the the McAfee Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware's "Engine creation date" is "7/15/2014",

      what is interesting is when I try to connect to a VPN in Taiwan, a update will be downloaded and the "Engine creation date" will be also updated to "8/14/2014",

      but after stop the VPN connection, then "Check for Updates" again, it will download and install a update again and the "Engine creation date" will be reversed back to "7/15/2014".

       

      It seems there are some problems with the local update mirrors.

       

      Here is the result when i do "nslookup download.mcafee.com":
