First off I would like to say that my primary responsibilitis don't include antivirus management/configuration.
All Windows computers on the Boston College network are required to have Mc Afee Virus Scan anti-virus software installed on their computer. Virus Scan is pre-configured to automatically update your anti-virus protection every day (except Saturday) from both on & off campus.
Sometimes Auto Update does not run automatically, such as when your computer is turned off.
I think I know enough to set everything up on a LAN with internet access, however I'm not as familiar with the steps involved on an isolated network.
Currently when you select update now in the Virus Scan console you receive the error "error ocurred while downloading file
The options “Allow User to Cancel Event”, “Shutdown after Maintenance”, and “Disable Keyboard and Mouse” can be enabled if desired. We push an image to all new PCs that includes Mc Afee.All of the servers are updated by regularly downloading the files from Mc Afee's site and uploading them to the servers.Overview This document will detail the recommended practice for configuring a 3rd party antivirus solution to update properly when Deep Freeze is protecting a workstation. Select Maintenance in the Event Type drop down dialog and click Add. Name the event “Mc Afee Antivirus” in the Event Name field. Select the frequency for the updates to occur in the Day drop down and set the start and end time for the event. Introduction Deep Freeze provides administrators with a way to protect workstations from changes by rolling back any change made to the computer at reboot. Click on the “Create” button on the toolbar and save the Workstation Install Program in a location that you will remember. Install the updated workstation install file on your workstations. Enter the following in the Batch File field on the Maintenance tab: @ECHO OFF IF EXIST "C:\Program Files\Mc Afee\Virus Scan Enterprise\mcupdate.exe" "C:\Program Files\Mc Afee\Virus Scan Enterprise\mcupdate.exe" IF EXIST "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mc Afee\Virus Scan Enterprise\mcupdate.exe" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mc Afee\Virus Scan Enterprise\mcupdate.exe" 11.This has the advantage of being one of the less difficult methods to configure but does require that the workstations have a period of time where they will not be used and can be configured to update automatically. Configuring Mc Afee Virus Scan to update with Deep Freeze Mc Afee Virus Scan supports the use of a command line function that can be used to trigger antivirus updates when the workstations enter into maintenance mode. Configure your Deep Freeze install package as per your normal requirements, including passwords and other settings that may be required. All of which means, Mc Afee Total Protection won’t slow you down.The Home Screen gives you all the information you need at a glance.
