OK I wish you the best of luck.
Pity you have to spend money to get rid of something, but sometimes it's the only way.
By the way, once this is all over you might want to check the auto-renewal status of the Virus Removal Service. It's a subscription service and they automatically renew it after 1 year unless you advise otherwise.
Of course if you want to keep it handy for emergencies then don't do anything.
It just dawned on me that originally posted URL in your header is wrong anyway so no wonder you couldn't reach it.
home.mcafee.com/root/stdlandingpage.aspx?LPName=1395_vrs&affid=0&aco=0&cur=au&culture=en-au&cid=78380 (after the http://)
Anyway, hope things turn out OK and let's not forget that I'm in Canada so maybe those URL's work differently from your end.
