Note for users of Version 2.x

McAfee have now phased out the 9700 series of virus definition data files. The December 1997 DAT file for this series, dat-9712, was the last public release. To check which version you're running, right-click on the VShield icon in the system tray, and select the About menu option. The McAfee VShield number, shown at the top of the About VShield window, is the version of VirusScan you're running. Network Associates have published a later file, in March '98, which they have announced will be the last file available for users of 2.x versions.

Note regarding detection of Melissa

To use the April '99 .DAT files to detect Melissa and related viruses, your anti-virus software must have v3.2.2 of the Network Associates scanning engine or later. Check the Help | About menu item in any VirusScan product to determine the version you're running.
