MCAfee Virus Scan problem

Every 3 hours a customer of us gets the following error message:

Der Scan hat einen Boot-Datensatz gefunden, der mit '_' '_' infiziert
ist. Entdeckt mit Scanmodul-Version 4.1.20 DAT-Version 4.0.4208.(von

I got a similar error until I updated both the scanning engine and the DAT file.  You can download the latest engine / DAT update from http://www.nai.com

If this doesn't help, I would suggest reinstalling VirusScan.

I tend to agree. I think you have issue matching the executable well with the pattern file, or - one of them went bad. So my best first guess is upgrade both, first the exe then the dat

But you might want to ask client what else is running, you don't want too many A/V's running on same machine at same time, for example. There could be some contention with another program, so assess entire box, for active programs and applications.

Yep, it looks like a scan engin problem, upgrade.  You should be on 4.1.60 now.

You can get the latest scan engine from NAI's ftp site, just download and run the Sdat file:
ftp://ftp.nai.com/pub/antivirus/datfiles/4.x/sdat4209.exe
(a new dat will be posted on 4/7/02, you will need to remove the sdat4209.exe bit to make the link work)

happy updating
