That depends on what it lloks like. If it's a small blue circle going round, McAfee is busy doing something - downloading and installing updates, or running a scan. If it's a box with a little 'i' in it, McAfee is waiting to tell you something, so double-click on the icon to see what it is.

Hi,

I don't know why, but I really laughed at this..

McAfee: HEY YOU, Yeah, you, we got your scan results, you been doing some dangerous surfing recently? yeah? really? Such a shame.

If it is animated then McAfee is working on something... If it is static then there is alert for you. Please double click the icon to know what is the alert. I hope this answers.
