    Please check McAfees site if you are running an outdated engine,

    The 4.1.60 Engine is Out of Date and No Longer Supported
    The notice below addresses two separate issues tracked and brought to
    resolution by McAfee AVERT and Support as they pertain to the 4.1.60 and
    4.3.20 Engines
    Scenario 1
    The 4.1.60 Engine was officially EOL (End of Life) at the end of August 2003
    and is no longer supported. With the release of the 4367 DATs, on Wednesday
    June 16, 2004, customers began to notify AVERT and Network Associates
    Support of machines failing to initialize after installing or updating to
    the 4367/4.1.60 configuration. The two components are not compatible and the
    4.1.60 engine needs to be removed and an update needs to take place to the
    4.3.20 engine.

    This has been documented and you can get more information by reading our
    Primus Articles listed below.

    We had this same problem with the DAT 4367. Returning to
    DAT 4366 it worked again.
