Hello imation,

If you update you McAfee definitions file right before your internet gets cut off and you run a full system scan, then there should be no need to update McAfee while cut off.

Just make sure what files, programs etc that you move to your PC are not infected.

"If you aint got an internet connection - then theres no way you can get a virus/trojan etc through the internet"

Reply if you need any more help :whistling:

Hello again,

What you would need to do is to backup your current virus definitions and burn them to a CD, but I am not sure as how to do this.

I will have a look around and see if I can find anything and I will post it here
