    Although McAfee's support services are probably the most pathetic and unhelpful things I've ever seen, it seems that most independent McAfee users and techies recommend updating to the most current DAT files, and engine. Here's a link that looks like it provides both.


    Good Luck,


    P.S- All of these systems have floppy drives installed, right? I know it's a dumb question, but apparently vshield 4.0.3 has a problem where it will freeze on machines without a floppy drive (as it tries to scan a floppy that isn't there).
