dat problem 6159 . my daily updater has not updated today at all. any feedback would be appreciated.

i'm a home user-mcafee internet suite. my question is simply this; my virus scan daily updater has not updated at all today. last update was on 11/6/2010. dat version 6159. mcafee virus scan 14.5 , build: 14.5.130 , last update 11/6/2010 , dat version 6159 , dat creation date 11/6/2010 , engine version 5400.1158. i'm wondering if mcafee's servers are down or if dats are late being posted or in worse case scenario if my security software is experiencing a technical problem ? any feedback would be appreciated.

I've been checking for the latest batches of fixes in the weekend updates, so I knew 6160 was ready to go. The DAT update came through two minutes ago on my PC but - I was checking through a load of log files - I see that it was ready to be downloaded over an hour ago and was waiting for a quiet time. You should have it any moment now ... although you could force the issue and do a manual update. 6160 is on its way. No worries.
