News Event update

When I click on the News Event update Menu item the following message appears:


"Looks like our server is busy, or you're offline. Check your connection and try again."

I am clearly online. I have retried this a couple of days in a row with each time the same

message as result.


Might there be an explanation for this ?


Any suggestions how this could be resolved?

Please reboot your computer and check if it works. Also, kindly update McAfee to get the latest version.

@Hi-There_15 I think they might be having some glitches. I have problem with this too. Also, my scan/firewall history is missing from a few months ago.

I tried your suggestion but unfortunately it did not solve the problem.
