RE: U3 AntiVirus Upgrade?

Have you tried the manufacturer's website to see if they have an upgrade to the U3 software available?

Meanwhile hopefully Tejash is still active and will answer.

Also see here especially How can I get upgrades for the U3 Launchpad?:

RE: U3 AntiVirus Upgrade?

Thanks for Answering Ex Brit.

I couldn't find an update on the U3 website, only a free trial for 30 days of McAfee, but i'd rather uninstall the one I've got without knowing if i can do anything else.

regarding the link you sent me:

"If the U3 Launchpad installed on your drive, does not have a Check for software updates button, contact the U3 smart drive manufacturer or check their web site for updates."

It doesn't have one, It only has an update button when I enter to de Antivirus program, which doesn't work. That's why I'm looking for some help here.


RE: U3 AntiVirus Upgrade?

I've asked for help here.

RE: U3 AntiVirus Upgrade?

I'm asked to ask you....we need to know what version of the U3 Launchpad you have (click "About"...or...?) and exactly what version of McAfee VS USB you have - version/engine/DAT.

RE: U3 AntiVirus Upgrade?

I've also been asked to ask you to log in to your McAfee online account and see what it says there for the expiry date on VirusScan USB.

RE: U3 AntiVirus Upgrade?

Have you been able to see the images of my last post? Just to know if I can send you some others

RE: U3 AntiVirus Upgrade?

Yes, but I don't see version numbers for the U3 Launchpad or VirusScan USB there. Only engine & DAT details for the latter.

RE: U3 AntiVirus Upgrade?

For instance. I am using my own U3 drive as an example.

The first shows the "About" VirusScan and the second shows the "About" for the U3 Launchpad software, usually found under Help & Support.

RE: U3 AntiVirus Upgrade?

Here you have de U3 version

And from here I think you can get the information about version of McAfee VS USB I have - version/engine/DAT

What i don't know is if I have a McAfee online account. I mean, if I have one, I never knew so.
