Mcafee antivirus not updating
I'm thinking of trying it on mine when my Eset subscription expires in July. On an office machine running XP, Mc Afee Enterprise does noticeably load the machine. When running Windows, I don't notice any significant slowdown due to Mc Afee. When running Windows, I only notice a Mc Afee slowdown when it is updating.But that's what my empoyer wants to use, so I don't have much choice. I normally set updating to manual on the laptop, and only do an update when the slowdown won't matter. I prefer manual update on a laptop, so that I can be sure it isn't in the middle of updating when I have to shut down in a hurry.Schedule security scans when you’re not using your PC.Automatic scans and updates occur when your PC is idle.The laptop has a slower CPU than the desktop, which is probably why it is more noticeable. With thousands of new viruses created every day, relying on traditional security updates isn't enough anymore.At this stage, I am wondering whether others are seeing the same problems, or is it just the two computers here.
If I try a manual update, the updater starts (appears in the system tray). But then the tray icon suddenly disappears, there is no message saying that A/V has update, there is no message saying that it was already up to date, there is no message saying that the update failed.And you're never more than one click away from it, which eliminates popup windows and makes for easy navigation.Simplified alerts and scan results make it easier than ever to protect your PC.I had also tried to update by right click on the Update Run, it always said update successful but actual fact it was not when I clicked on help , about virus scan enterprise , it shown me the old DAT file.All computers are connected to the EPO server, the agent show the last contacted was recent.
