    McAfee Internet Security - Update Only Definitions or Disable Update Auto Reboot

    bawdyn

      Hi,

       

      I'm really angry and frustrated with how McAfee Internet Security does its updates. I just lost hours of work because it decided to reboot for an update without warning about an hour after I had selected 'Remind me Later' to the update pop-up.

       

      I know there is an option to disable updates, but the problem with that is there doesn't seem to be any distinction between updates to the virus signatures and updates to the program. What I would like is for the definitions to update automatically, but I want to check for program updates at a time I am ready for a reboot. If that isn't possible, I would like to disable the auto reboot so I don't lose my work again.

       

      Does anyone know if either of these is possible? Thanks in advance for any help you can give.
