Here is some advice donít! Only joking mate.
McAfee Installation advice.
Can you not install it from a console on the server?

What console? There isnt one.
To further the problem, our LEA have a deal with McAfee where they can get the AV for half the price. Only problem is, that the only way to install it is via a web browser, on each machine! Considering the saving that it has, it looks like the school might be going for it, even if it does increase my workload significantely.

Been using McAfee with ePO (ePolicy Orchestrator) without a hitch here for a while now, the decision for this solution because the LEA provide it to us for free. I had to call the LEA support to get the disk with the latest versions of the VirusScan, Anti-Spyware and the ePO.
Once ePO is setup, which does take some fiddling, sending the ePO agent and then the AntiVirus and Anti-Spyware to the clients is straight forward. The most problems I get is sending the agent over the wireless network to some laptops which seems to fail.
You can even set ePO to detect when machines have been connected without AntiVirus and to force it upon them.
Have a word with your LEA and see if you can have ePO to run on a server within your school. In the long run it will save you much time.

Sorry to hijack the thread but is the epo a separate /addon product to virusscan? We have Enterprise 8.5i but no epo as far as I can see.

There is an instillation designer, which you can download from the Mcafee website if you have the Grant number from your LEA. This creates a custom msi with all your settings built in. As it's MSI it will run silently.
The only problem I had (with v8.0) was ticking the box that told it to update the virus defs during setup - this caused it to hang, so I left it out and it would update itself on the next schedule.
