Unable to update McAfee in Multi-AV.
"Data connection: Unknown error; Data transfer was aborted".

I remember many, many months ago you were posting a step-by-step instruction
as how to manually download the data (superdat) from McAfee's website and
then installing it to the Multi-AV tool.

Would you kindly please re-post this instruction, many thanks in advance.

Jean:

It could a problem in the server.  I have added a few differnt servers in the
script;
McAfee.kix

Open McAfee.kix in Notepad.  Go down approx 21 lines.
Find...
$Site="ftp.nai.speedera.net"
;$site="ftpeur.nai.com"
;$Site="ftp.mcafee.com"

Note that two of the lines are commented out with the semicolon ";"
Put a ";" in front of the line $Site="ftp.nai.speedera.net" so it becomes
;$Site="ftp.nai.speedera.net"

Now remove ";" from one of the other two lines and save the file then launch the
Start Menu
again and re-try the McAfee module.

Thanks Dave.
1.) Implemented your instruction (partial print-out below)
"$Report"'
$CMDline=$CMDline1+$MalwareProcMode+$CMDline2
$drive=left($home,2)
;$Site="ftp.nai.speedera.net"
$site="ftpeur.nai.com"
$Site="ftp.mcafee.com"
$EXTRAsrc="c:\AV-CLS\extra.dat"
$pmfolder=readvalue("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion","ProgramFilesDir")

2.) Rebooted, opened McAfee.kix and double checked if settings were saved
correctly.
3.) Launched the Start Menue and re-tryed the McAfee module, unfortunately I
am still unable to download the files.

I am sorry you are having troables downloading teh McAfee SuperDAT.

Are you having troubles downloading from other sites ?

Another alternate method:

Download the EXE SuperDAT from here
http://www.mcafee.com/apps/downloads/security_updates/superdat.asp?region=us&segment=enterprise

Assuming the SuperDAT is; sdat5216.exe

Rename sdat5216.exe to setup.exe

Save setup.exe in;  C:\AV-CLS\mcafee

Then start the Multi AV Scanning Tool again and choose the McAfee module.

Thanks again, David.

McAfee Worked like a charm :-)

McAfee VirusScan for Win32 v5.20.0
Copyright (c) 1992-2007 McAfee, Inc. All rights reserved.
(408) 988-3832  LICENSED COPY - Jun  5 2007

Scan engine v5.2.00 for Win32.
Virus data file v5217 created Jan 28 2008
Scanning for 368001 viruses, trojans and variants.

Scanning C: [WinXP]
C:\Program Files\UPHClean\uphclean.exe  \Scanning C:\*.*
(end of print-out of dos screen)

Please note that I didn't reverse the changes made to McAfee.kix in Notepad.

Updating the other 3 modules is no problem.

I only recently re-installed my OS, 'hardened' it considerable and am
assuming that this may inhibit the function of the downloading process of
superDAT using the original procedure. I also recall using the McAfee
removal tool some time ago, this too may have been a causing factor.

Anyway, everything appears to be A1 OK.

As a thought, it may be beneficial for others adding the alternate
downloading procedure to http://pcdid.com/Multi_AV.htm . It would complement
and complete the already detailed instructions.

David, my real-time resident AV is Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0.2.621.
Would you regard it as superfluous scanning with the Kasperksy module in
Multi-AV as well?

Thanx for the feedback Jean.

The personna BigBruva owns http://pcdid.com/Multi_AV.htm and I haven't been able
to
communicate with him for well over a year.

What I will do is update the PDF Help File with this information.  Maybe what I
should do
is script this fall-back signature download as well.

If you have Kaspersky resident, then running the Kaspersky module is supurfluos
in your
case.
