I am thinking if I can download the most current updates (DAT files) on my laptop and manually install them on my desktop so then a resulting scan should be able to find and remove the problem. So is there anyone that can help me with a step-by-step on how to manually install the Mc Afee updates (DATs)? Do I have to delete the old DAT files currently contained in the DAT folder or does that resolve itself when I re-enable the Mc Afee scanner?

I have been using the 'much loved' mcafee for a couple of years now as I have never experienced the problems others have described. I have had this subscription for about half a year and it has been fine, then randomly it has started constantly 'Checking for Updates' and running a full computer scan hogging all my CPU.
