Re: LiveSafe DAT update

Jump to solution

Hi

just want to say that there has been real problems with updates during the years for example one time an update blocked  the acces to the intrernet for many

users. Another time McAfee created an update that blocked McAfee to update itself the next time an update was relaesed  So just because you have automatic updates turned on it doesn´t guarantees that everything is ok.. But hopefully it will be updated soon. The part of not working was ment as more of a joke , still it has happened during the recent weekends.

Hi

 

During the last 24 hours, my LiveSafe software has updated from DAT 4398 to 4310 and now 4313!

I accept all now appears to be working correctly but something must have been going on.

Hi 

When I started up pc today I did an manual search for updates and now has  version 4313. But I have a suggestion that if our pc:s has been shut down over night or longer McAfee should when it´s connected to their servers automaticly should check if the program has the latest update. Now it can take hours before it does so.

Shouldn´t be to hard to implement that function , Avast does that. Another thing I would like to see is that the icon in the activity field should show if McAfee is connected to the cloud. Because tests have showed that it,s about 20% difference in detection rate if the program has a connection to the cloud or not.
