The SuperDAT utility allows you to upgrade your scanning engine and your virus signature (DAT) files. The regular DAT (X-DAT) utility only updates the DAT files. New engines are only created as needed, approximately every 3 to 6 months, so updating with the SuperDAT is not always necessary.
Trusted by individual users and large companies alike, McAfee VirusScan is the world's 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!
Virus definition, or DAT, files contain up-to-date virus signatures and other information that our anti-virus products use to protect your computer against thousands of computer viruses and other potentially harmful software in circulation. Hundreds of new threats appear each month. Every week, we release new DAT files. We also release new DAT files when any threat is assessed by AVERT to have a medium or higher risk.

plz compress the sdat file size
I like Mcafee freeware too. The only problem is the size and its tough to download on slow internet and they should make the thread available as soon as they update the DAT.
Right now I want to download but its showing both DAT 6984 and 6985 but the available thread 6984 says its out of date meanwhile the 6985 is not available either.
Ive been used mcafee sdat for 3 years till now my pc was clean and fast... tnx to mcafee maker god bless you all of the team..

Good. Too large file in size. Think of making it at least half in size to existing one, please..............!
mcafee is a wonderful antivirus the only issue is the size of the dat file. it is too big and it takes long on slower networks. can u try to compress it please. otherwise its the best
