McAfee virus definitions Download Latest 2021

Whats is McAfee?

Mcafee is the worlds premier virus detection and removal solution for a major source of infection: your desktop and remote machines, as well as handheld devices.

VirusScan Professional Edition includes quick cleanup of your PC, complete shredding for privacy, and advanced virus protection for two computers!

McAfee is one of the names that can be trusted for Anti-virus and malware detection having been active in the business for close to two decades. The McAfee Virus Definitions is an update file that contains the latest virus definitions to help the McAfee virus scanner detect all the latest viruses that are spreading across the internet via web sites, programs and email. Definition files are updates periodically, sometimes even daily, with new viruses as they are detected by the McAfee team and added to the file. It is important to keep updating the McAfee virus scanner package for the highest detection rates.


1. Create a temporary directory on your hard disk.
2. Download the XDAT file to the temporary directory from our website. For the location, see the 'Contacting McAfee' section in this readme.
3. Double-click the XDAT file to start the update.
4. Follow the instructions in the wizard panels.

The installer then does the following:

- Unloads McAfee's memory-resident software or stops services that use your current DAT files.
- Copies new DAT files to the appropriate program directories.
- Restarts the software components needed to continue scans with your new DAT files.

5. When the McAfee DAT File installer has finished updating your DAT files, you may delete the file you downloaded, unless you want to keep a copy available for further updates.

All McAfee products that use virus-scanning engine version 4.3.20 (or later) are compatible with these DAT files and users should keep them updated at all times. You can get more information about the updating procedure by accessing this page.

With the latest McAfee Virus Definitions installed on your computer, you can make sure that your McAfee product can block online attacks, find and delete malware from your computer, and keep your personal information safe at all times.
