Updating McAfee VirusScan
McAfee VirusScan may be updated using SuperDATs. A SuperDAT is a self-installing package containing updates to both the anti-virus “engine” and the anti-virus “signatures”.
SuperDATs are released every weekday (US time) and therefore available for download Tuesday to Saturday (Australian time). Each new SuperDAT contains every update that came before, so it is not necessary to download and install every package. Once a week is usually sufficient for most purposes.
- If you are prompted to reboot your computer, do so.
