Re: Unable to get updates - corrupt DAT file

Jump to solution

So far, so good. The updates have been running normally for over a week without a recurrence of the problem, but I still do not know for certain what has changed to allow them to run again. It probably was not the temp files (although I did clear about 1.5 GB from the folder) because there was one further breakdown in the updates after clearing them (and only a few MB then in the temp folder). There has, however, been no further trouble (so far) since I installed a major McAfee update with restart on 27 January.

Well that's good.  The major update must have cleared up whatever the corruption was.

All the best 😉
