I was surfing the Net and got a warning from McAfee (it's on here from way back) asking me if I wanted to allow that program. I said to block it but it still showed up on computer.

I don't use McAfee as my Anti-Virus since I use AVG....but the Firewall and Security Center I left active.

I ran SuperAntiSpyware and it found 5 items....I then ran Malwarebytes and it found one item. I cleared both and then rebooted. Now it is telling me that neither of the McAfee programs work. Should I be concerned?

Try to boot into Safe Mode and post a HiJack This (http://download.cnet.com/Trend-Micro-HijackThis/3000-8022_4-10227353.html) log.

I'm thinking about creating a one-stop thread for these issues, that I'll also send to anyone who emails me about virus/malware problems... it'll be a huge time saver.
