DAT files won't update after Windows Update-Running Cox/McAfee software

Running WINXP on a Dell 1300 Inspiron with Cox's McAfee software. After certain Windows Updates, McAfee will not update DAT files. Had this problem on another computer last May, and McAffe advised to load certain Microsoft .net programs from Windows Update. That cured the problem on that computer. I have lost their instructions. Please advise. Thanks.

If it was McAfee Technical Support that told you that then best to contact them as we have no access to their records.   They are linked under Useful Links at the top of this page.
