I purchased the software yesterday, ran the scans, and things have been deleted however when I try to go to foxnews.com, facebook.com, etc. this is the message I got:
Your system is infected. Please activate your antivirus software.

Internet Explorer 8

In order to get Malwarebytes running, you'll need to rename the executable.. If Malwarebytes is already
installed, open the C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes Antimalware folder, then rename the "mbam.exe" file
to something else, like "gogetum.com", then double click directly on the file to open the program.
After updating the program, Run a full system scan using Malwarebytes
Update both programs them before running them and let them clean anything they find. If they quarantine
a file or fails to remove a file try to get a copy of it and send it to Mcafee using the virus submission path described here.
