It is 8:38 P.M. August 22, 2012 eastern time and I checked to see if my McAffee had updated itself and it hadn't so I decided to do it manually I did and it updated the current dat version is  6812 and I hope it is current. Will I have to remember to check manually or will it eventually straighten itself in time?

Thank you
