mcafee autoupdate fails for ver 5100

About 5 years ago I wrote a script that tries multiple mcafee ftp servers
until it can find a good file to download.  It works about 99% of the time.
One of the nice options is it will email you when the update happens.
Normally I ran it from Cron but recently I retrofitted it for MS.  I could
make it available if there is any interest.
