I`m using XP Home and running McAffee v 2.00.1131.0

I get the update message available from the McAfee site

When I try to d`load the upgrade it gets so far before I get an RuLaunch error message

Any ideas anyone?

RuLaunch.exe - McAfee VirusScan instant updates for virus definitions.
Disable it and update your AV signature files manually.


Recommendation :

There are so many problems with McAfee VirusScan that the last thing you want is a VirusScan background task doing badly in the background what you can do manually yourself. RULAUNCH often crashes or fails, or is it fails and crashes ?!!! Even if you have not experienced a problem with RULAUNCH, we suggest you disable it and simply manually update VirusScan To disable RULAUNCH : start VirusScan. Then "Pick a Task \ Change my VirusScan settings \ Configure Instant Updater \ Configure Automatic Updates \ Manual Update".
