This may be "Much a-do about nothing" However, due to my periodic bouts of insomnia (3:05 AM, I decided to get online this morning and had a McAfee Prompt "McAfee has installed the latest updates" Knowing full well that I was already current with my daily updates, I opened Security Center to inspect what was updated? It displayed that an update was applied to my "Current Version-Build (13.8.712) yet there was no "Build change" Update occured @ 11.52 PM-10/24/2013
As I have stated in previous threads, on 10/16/2013 I was upgraded in McAfee Security Center ( 12.8.856 ) -Personal Firewall - (13.8.712)
I realise Anti-Spam updates daily to a different "Content Version", and then afterwards has incremental-periodic updates throughout the day to the " Content Update"
Example- My current "Content Version"- 4741 just updated it,s "Content", after my morning weekly scheduled scan.
My Question being is...Was the update to my Personal Firewall simply a "Content Update" similar to Anti-Spam?
Or.....should my "Build number" have changed. it is still 13.8.712 ?
If I need to send a Screen Capture-Picture...please advise.
I,m pretty well savy to how Total Protection functions, just wondering if this was normal?
I might add that I did not do a restart, especially knowing I had a weekly scan due to start in short time.
Which it did, and completed in (44) minutes-131,215 Files-No Detections.
I apologise if this is construed as a "Dumb Question"....Yet when in doubt...I (always) ask.
Thank you in advance....
It may simply have been a small patch and thus the build would not change. Unfortunately they never tell us the details.
As always, thanks Ex Brit. I was assuming and hoping the same thing. For all is functioning fine it seems.
As inundated as all of you get at times, I was hesitant asking ......
Just as I stated in my very first post, I have obtained a wealth of knowledge simply by observing the responses by Moderators-Tech Support. I personally appreciate the assistance "Yourself", PeaceKeeper, and Hayton have given me in the past.
Chuckle...I can still recall Hayton during one of her posts saying " That she was going to close all (20) Tabs" she had open, following her research to a question, in regards to Site Advisor.
Have a Great Weekend,
LOL, thanks. BTW Hayton is a 'he'. 😉
Rutt-Row !!!!!! LOL.....Like I said....I,ve learned a "Wealth" of knowledge from reading Moderators responses !!!!
" Proof Evidence" by your response.... ( Blush)
For the Record....I,m of Male Gender also.
Better get on off here....
