Four years ago I bought McAfee VirusScan 6.0 and you could download and install the updates
every week. Two years ago I bought McAfee VirusScan 7.0 thinking I need a newer version. I installed it and updated it no problem but I didn't like it compared with 6.0 so 6.0 went back in. On 30/10/06 I downloaded sdat4883.exe
, installed it no problem. The following day I downloaded sdat4884.exe
but when I tried to update it said I don't have any McAfee products. This is bull I've been using McAfee for four years.
So last November I decided to upgrade McAfee again to McAfee VirusScan 2006 v10.0. Installed it no problem. Tried to install the latest update but it came back with the same error I don't have any McAfee products. I ran sdat4883.exe which worked before and it worked again.
In the new year I decided to do a format and rebuild, I hadn't done one for 18 months. So I knew everything would be fresh and not corrupted. I reinstalled Win98se and decided to put the VirusScan in first to see if it would work. It installed in no problem, I ran sdat4903.exe the lastest update but it couldn't find any McAfee products again. I ran sdat4883.exe which worked before and it worked again.
So in conclusion no updates work from 31/10/06, as anyone else had this problem? What I've been doing for the past couple of months is copying the update files of the computers at work to a flash drive and taking them home that way.
