They mentioned McAfee 10 and earlier is no longer supported (end of life) on Feb. 28, 2009
Your option if upgrade if you want to continue using their program.
A couple of months ago I updated my McAfee virus program with the sdat5816.exe update and now every time I start my computer it brings up a message which says that the files have been tampered with and to use the emergency disk to find the virus and then reinstall McAfee. Well, not particularly believing that something had tampered with the files I just removed the McAfee program from the computer and registry and reinstalled it. when I updated the program with an old sdat file it worked fine then when I updated the program with the newer sdat file this same problem occured again. I then scrubbed my entire hard drive and did a fresh install of the entire winxp and experienced the same results the old sdat files worked fine and the newer sdat files bring up this message saying that something has tampered with the McAfee files.
It appears that McAfee is discouraging anyone with an older program to drop the use and subscribe to the online system they now promote. Any feedback?
