I have Mcafee Security center that came with my Dell optiplex when purchased in 2006, System is Windows XP, SP2, . Subscription is current till July 09. After an automatic update Friday , 2/6, I received an error message concerning Mcshield. Sunday morning when waking up the computer there was a McAfee notice that an update had failed and that VirusScan needed to be reinstalled. Version information is : VirusScan Version 12.1, version 12.1.110, AffId 105-72, last Update 2/6/09. I did not reinstall.
On Saturday I did a Malwarebytes. quick scan, and Superantispyware , full scan.
Both updated prior to scanning. SAS found only tracking cookies, ( which it always does)but nothing else. Mbam found nothing. On Sunday I updated Mbam to version 1738 and did a complete scan of my C drive and a USB stick on F drive. Both found nothing.
At approx 2:48 PM EST Sunday a new McAfee VirusScan update came through and was installed. Possibly this has corrected a problem??I have received no new McAfee notices of problems. How can I check to see if VirusScan is functioning OK?? McAfee security center appears normal. I did a manual update check and it said I was up to date.
Any and all input is appreciated
