McAfee vr 8 will not update on Server 2003

We have an instance on a DC running server 2003 that McAfee vr 8 will not update.

We have removed McAfee and checked all items have gone from the registry, program files etc and then run a re-install.

At the end of the install when McAfee trys to update is has the same issue. The only way to stop the attempted update is to Ctrl, Alt, Del to end the task.

You can download sdat from McAfee's site and can update McAfee manually.

Hi, thanks have installed andjust waiting to restart the server out of hours to see if that has helped.

Cheers
Great .. Keep me posted if it updated your McAfee fine.
Hi,

I'm taking over from my collegue, who isn't available at the moment, so this may be a little jumbled....

I've logged onto this DC with the problem, and looking at the 'VirusScan Console' the 'AutoUpdate' is still failing. The log gives this error constantly...

"Administrator      The update task will be re-tried in 3 minutes because update is in progress"

This message flashes up on the log everyfew minutes, and apparently has done since the reinstall that my colleague performed.

Any ideas? Hope this is clear :P

Thanks for your time
