McAffee puts out an update file every week on Wednesday. They also put out
a "super dat" file that updates the scan engine, as well as the dat file.
You only need the super dat if the scan engine version is newer than the one
you are currently using. They recently released 4070 scan engine. You will
notice that the sdat file is bigger than the dat file. The dat file just
updates the virus definitions.
