My organization is considering purchasing McAfee antivirus for its computers. But some of the computers will be distributed to remote office that do not have internet. Is it possible to update the antivirus on the remote offices computers off-line?

yest it may be possible. but if you go to this link

select any of the dat files on there and look at the notes column. there's a text file explaining where the files need to go, so the theory is that the admin guy would need to download the dat file and email/post on a fdd/usb stick to the client who requires update dat file and they can then install it. but obviously the system admin guy is going to need to write a foolproof idiots guide on how to do it.
