    Disturbing is an understatement! Even more annoying is that I spent almost a half-hour after reading your post, on the McAfee web sites trying to find some mention of the problem or a hot fix. Couldn't find anything. Their web pages are so convoluted.

    I don't know about other computer users, but I STAY angry all the time that the world is so full of dirt bags and we don't seem able to stop them or do anything about the evil destruction they cause! If I had MY way.....

    Since I own McAfee VirusScan Pro Version 6.02 and just re-installed it the other day after the lengthy discussion about AVG, I can only pray that when it visited their site to get the latest dat files and UPDATES, that I have the latest fixes. (Computer) Life Is A Bitch!

    It would be interesting to know if McAfee are up to speed with their definitions.

    I got an email warning in from Kaspersky about three hours ago - this triggers an emergency auto-update of definitions. They warn of a new version of I-Worm.Frethem.e.

    If you don't do regular updates, you may benefit from subscribing to their newsletter : http://www.viruslist.com/eng/maillist.html

    <IMG SRC=http://www.krymow.com/images/firedevil.gif> Yep! Back in February I encountered this very issue of McAfee failing to detect W32Klez.E and .H. Even after updating for these specific virii they failed. And NAV would pick it up every other time if I was lucky.

    Most of the people that I am acquainted with - live and online - refuse to have McAfee as their AntiVirus program...myself included. It all boils down to personal preference...but you couldn't pay me to install McAfee on my computer.
    Just my <img src=/S/2cents.gif border=0 alt=2cents width=15 height=15> worth.
