I use McAfee VirusScan Enterprise + AntiSpyware Enterprise 8.5.0i
Patch 8 , Scan Engin version 5301:4018 , Dat version 5676 (created on 14July2009)

So far it is working fine..but From today I get the following warning from Windows Security Center;

Virus protection
"VirusScan Enterprise + AntiSpyware Enterprise is on but is reporting its status to Windows Security Center in a format that is no longer supported. Use the programme's automatic updating feature, or contact the program manufacturer for an updated version."

Could somebody help me why I am getting this and how I can overcome this please..
[My system: Vista 64 bit]

Give this a shot :

Click Start - type cmd in the Start Search box,  Locate above - RIGHT CLICK ON - RUN AS ADMIN

At the command prompt, type the following commands. Pressing ENTER after each command line:

winmgmt /verifyrepository

winmgmt /salvagerepository

Restart the computer.

I think that this is some bug between Vista Security Center and McAfee but I'm also 99% sure that you're protected. 

P.S.

You also have possibility to Turn Off Notification about this bug in "Change the way Security Center alerts me".

Hi,

Even after executing the windows command. I am still getting this message.

Can we simply ignore this?

Thanks,
Kiran.

Hi Samker,

Do you know how I can solve this problem?
I have installed McAfee Virusscan 8.5.0i, incl. Patch 8,(with Vista Home Premium 32-bit SP2).
And the coming days I planned to install the hotfixes HF458640, and HF472021.
