With the rise of threats to the users online, there is a need that your cyber protection software is aware about the upcoming threats in order to build a better protection against them. This need is catered by the feature known as the Virus definition updates. In the Intel’s McAfee AntiVirus, a lot of stress is laid upon these updates in order for the intelligent application to develop some instant countermeasures against the infections. While this update feature is automated for the software by default, you might find yourself at a disadvantage if due to some issue or the other, this feature is disabled in your version of the application.
Therefore, in order to make sure that your McAfee is constantly updated, you need to check up on its settings and take certain precautions if you wish to see that your PC remains healthy at the time of cyber crisis. Our experts of McAfee Support Australia are happy to impart some of these helpful tips to you.
v Tips to make sure that the antivirus is always updated
Turn on the auto updater utility: If you have gotten this application with the device itself, then rest assured that the auto update is enabled. If not, launch the app and go to settings and turn the auto update function on.
If the utility is on and still no update is available: In this case, some app or a virus is stopping the antivirus from being updated. Run a full scan of the system with the current settings of the application. If something adulterous is detected, it will automatically be taken care for.
Refrain from installing cracked software: We know that the forbidden fruit known as the “free stuff” is one of the best tasting ones, but try to refrain from using these “cracked” programs. They contain Trojans used to bypass the registry entries so that the software is accepted.
Update using the safe mode: In the safe mode, much of the vanity-based software is disabled and it will allow you to update the McAfee without the intrusion of any foreign entities.
Use a package: go to the official McAfee site and download an update package. You can install it later on at your leisure (Although we implore you to install the software straight away)
Restart the system: If all fails, restart your computer and go through the above given tips again.
While rudimentary, the above tips will contribute heavily to make sure that your antivirus software is always in the best condition.
