- Virus Protection
Configure Windows McAfee Virus Scan to AutoUpdate
New viruses are produced every day, so it is necessary to keep McAfee's virus definition, or .DAT up to date. .DAT files contain up-to-date virus signatures and other information that McAfee anti-virus products use to protect your computer against the thousands of computer viruses in circulation. McAfee releases new .DAT files weekly to provide protection against the approximately 500 new viruses that appear each month. These instructions will assist you in configuring Virus Scan's auto update feature.
In the system tray in the lower right-hand corner of your screen, right-click over the Virus Scan Icon, and select VirusScan Console.
Double-click on AutoUpdate, and click the Schedule button.
Here you would select a time that you would like for the machine to go out to retrieve the most recent DAT files. Please make sure that you have established an internet connection during the time that you have the update scheduled.
