Mcafee not autoupdating since march 30
Since this was clean installation that meant it had nowhere to go! t=141537&page=3 It’s a forum post where someone suggests manually creating a file.The scenario was slightly different as they were talking about e Pos but the theory must be the same So I copied the file from another PC onto this PC in this folder This sorted the problem!
I had a meeting with Trend a couple of weeks ago and I’m about to evaluate their stuff.
I then realised that if i’d entered the UNC wrong it would have fallen back to the HTTP or FTP repository….something else was going on here!
So first i checked the updater log 3/25/2008 AM Starting Virus Scan task: Auto Update3/25/2008 AM Starting update session.3/25/2008 AM Unable to find a valid repository.3/25/2008 AM Closing the update session. I look all around the program files directory to see if there were any extra log files and i couldn’t find anything I did some searching and came across this article https://knowledge.mcafee.com/article/299/5170943_f.
After installing the KIS, I activated the product by entering the license key and then manually updated the database to the latest available version.
And after that, I didn’t bother to open Kaspersky as I was under the impression that it would automatically download the database and requires no manual intervention but I was wrong." "This case shows once again that even brand new products can leave the factory infected.
