How to update mcafee antivirus manually
  

Hi,

I have a windows vista pc. I have mcafee 8.5 antivirus and I want to update that. So my question is how to update mcafee antivirus manually ?? If you can tell how to update it offline, I would be grateful. I don't want to use new mcafee antivirus 2009 because its heavy and consume more resources.

Re: How to update mcafee antivirus manually

If your network connection is fully functional, the McAfee agent is the easiest way to install McAfee VirusScan. I recommend you don't not use this method, because you already have a virus and will not come online, or if not, such as your network connection is blocked, then the various components of McAfee on another computer download and USB memory stick on your computer. Then you can perform a manual installation.

If you are connected to the VUB network or Internet, you can use the Update Now feature the latest updates to win. Alternatively use the latest SuperDAT file from the VUB / ULB ftp site out. You need the latest SDAT ####. exe files.

If you have the new McAfee Tray Icon, right-click with the mouse on this icon. Then (with the left button) on VirusScan Enterprise, and then again on VirusScan Console.

If the "older" have McAfee VirusScan Icon (above, right icon), right-click with your mouse on this icon. Then (with the left button) on VirusScan Console.
Choose either a full scan / full scan (all files) or a limited scan / Targeted scan (files that are most likely to be infected), click here with the right mouse button and then select start.
