With thousands of new viruses created every day, relying on traditional security updates isn't enough anymore. Unlike the competition, exclusive McAfee Active Protection technology instantly analyzes and blocks new and emerging threats in milliseconds so there's virtually no gap in your protection.
Work or play with minimal interruptions with fast and effective virus, malware, and spyware scanning. Schedule security scans when you’re not using your PC. Automatic scans and updates occur when your PC is idle. All of which means, McAfee Total Protection won’t slow you down.
The Home Screen gives you all the information you need at a glance. And you're never more than one click away from it, which eliminates popup windows and makes for easy navigation. Simplified alerts and scan results make it easier than ever to protect your PC.
How to install McAfee updates:
- Select the file according to your McAfee AV version
- Create a temporary directory on your hard disk. A New Folder on your desktop is fine.
- Download the XDAT file to the temporary directory from our website.
- Double-click the XDAT file to start the update.
- Follow the instructions in the wizard panels.
- The installer then does the following:
- Unloads McAfee memory-resident software or stops services that use your current DAT files.
- Copies new DAT files to the appropriate program directories.
- Restarts the software components needed to continue scans with your new DAT files.
- When the installer has finished updating your DAT files, you may delete the file you downloaded, unless you want to keep a copy available for further updates.
