Need help from a Mcafee expert please. I have the entire Mcafee suite installed on a WIN98 450MhZ PC for about 2 years now. I have always gone to their site and downloaded the newest DAT files once a month or so.

http://download.mcafee.com/updates/superDat.asp?real=0

The last 2 versions (4153&4180) gives me the following error: "did not find any qualifying products."

Their site is absoloutely no help unless you have subscribed to one of their services. I know this is kind of a longshot, but does anyone have any ideas?

Hiya

Not a Mcafee user, but did the files get downloaded to your PC, or did the error message cime up whilst you were online?

I'm also wondering if you have to pay for your registration again, as some AV programs ask you to after a year or two.

Also, and this has happened with me just recently, it may be due to the fact that it cannot download properly. I use AVP, and had a few errors popping up when trying to download the updates. Found out I had to change the ftp site.
Also, other problems I had was that it wasn't getting updated. I had to install 3 or 4 times for it to acknowledge. Not a direct answer, but have you tried several times?

Regards

If you are using version 4.xx then I'm afraid your out of luck. As of December that version was no longer supported.
You will have to upgrade to version 5.xx or 6.xx. I upgraded this past fall when I found out that version 4.03 would no longer be supported.

As usual, this site comes thru for me...

I am indeed using version 4.X and was unaware that it was no longer supported. Guess I'll have to upgrade. Thanks for the info.

Mcafee 4.03 uninstall

Click on the link above and print out the instructions for removal of virus scan 4.03 if you do upgrade to another version.
It can be quite tricky so follow the directions closely.
