McAfee Won't detect virus

I had popups on internet explorer and on skype (web-cam which I didn't open) saying that I have virus.  I ran virus scan McAfee found nothing. Other than the popups my computer works fine.  How do I get rid of the virus and if I can't can I just leave it as is seeing as McAfee can't find anything and my computer is working fine?

Thank you.

Re: McAfee Won't detect virus


If you believe you have a virus or other malware on your computer, run the stinger scan from here, as it could be a fake alert . Complete the stinger scan and check the status.
