McAfee Virus Scanner Did Not Detect Viruses

My pc notified me of 5 viruses just yesterday. I bought a one year total protection from McAfee. Their scanner did not detect any viruses, is there any reason why it didnt detect said viruses? How do i fix it to make sure the viruses are detected and removed?

Re: McAfee Virus Scanner Did Not Detect Viruses

Hello @JosephP518 ,

The notification that you received about virus might be a browser pop up so we suggest you to share the screenshot of the notification and also run on full scan on the machine it will make sure there are no suspicious files.
