You cannot update McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 8.0.0 after March 31st 2010  as they use V1 DAT files which are now obsolete. The newer V2 DAT files are not compatible with v 8.0.0 and earlier, meaning that you cannot apply any further updates.  This will leave the client PC vulnerable to attack from newer viruses as a result.

Additionally and conveniently for McAfee, VirusScan Enterprise 8.0.0 also became end of life after March 31st 2010.

I would recommend that you replace this version with a supported later version or an alternative supported AV product.
