I have the McAfee 4.X engine and never have had a problem updating the DAT files. Currently I have 4.0.4153. I have tried several times to download the latest DAT file 4154. However, when I click the download button all that I get is an icon, it looks to me like an active-X icon. There is no error message. Can someone help.

Thanks kahlean. I had found this site and it didn't work for me. It seems I need the update ini for my engine but this doesn't work either. I wonder if anyone can send me a copy of my missing file--the setup.ins.

is there any possibility of uninstalling and reinstalling the mcafee antivirus?

Also if this file is realted to your search engine, can you upgrade it as well from mcafee?

I cannot right click and save the file. The situation when I try to download the dat is as I described in my first statement of the problem. When I click I only get the icon for active x. I do not know what the problem is.

I should add that the missing file setup.ins is a script file.

does this happen when you try to download other file as well? This seems strange here as it seems that your ie is having some problem here. Try to restore to all default setting in your ie? If you need the direct link to the downlaod file here is it.

http://a64.g.akamai.net/7/64/2015/2001-08-15-09-34-39-739/download.nai.com/products/licensed/superdat/english/intel/4154xdat.exe

JUst click on the link.

I the problem still persist, try uninstalling and install again.

If it doenst uninstall, you might need some extra work here that is a manual delete.Not really recommended  

1. Rename the mcafee folder to another name.
2. Go to registry and seach for any macafee key. Remove it
3. Now start the installation.

But before attempting the registry edit, backup your registry

well i suggest you upgrade to the lastest ie version which is ie5.5 sp2 It has tons of hotfixes. See if this help.
Here is the link.

Get it from www.microsoft.com


But for the meantime if you wish to do download the update file you can use download accelerator instead of the defauly windows download. Just copy the extension and paste in in the in the url and click to start donwload.

Check it out from www.dap.com By the way it is free.

Thanks for drawing my attention to the real problem. I reinstalled I.E. 5 and this did not help. Then I reinstalled Windows 98 and this did not help. Then I found out that the problem was my NetZip program which had been working perfectly. Apparently something I downloaded was in conflilt with my NetZip. Once I uninstalled NetZip I was able to download again.
