I have the latest version of McAfee (ver 10.0, build 10.0.27) installed and is updated on the PC I am using right now. I have another PC with McAfee installed, bot on the internet, on which I want to update the virus definitions. I also have a 40GB USB Drive. Are there some files I can copy from here and paste them there to have the off-line computer updated aswell? Or is there some other way?

Thanks in advance for your help.

I don't think so because update files are most likely hidden and written in the registry.

Beside, you don't really need to update if the computer is disconnected from the internet..
