avvdat-####[1].zip files with no McAfee

I understand the avvdat files are propegated by McAfee.  However, we run Symantec and no McAfee and I've found our mail server is running low on disk space.  I found for each person who uses terminal services on our mail server, they have a large number of these avvdat files in their temporary internet files in Content.IE.  Can these just be deleted?  Is it a virus?  Can you give me some immediate information on these?  Thank you again so very much for your assistance.

Avvdat files are McAfee virus database defination update files.

They can be deleted with no problems.

In fact, they can be deleted the moment they are applied.

Hope that helps
Were you using McAfee previously?

I'm just curious how those McAfee update files got there in the beginning.
