Cant get McAffe to install

I tried to install 3-User McAfee Total Protection and the security window after install was blank.  I did the online chat support and determined that a virus might be there so he told me to do the free scan.  The scan showed

C:\0bcobed.exeGeneric PWS.ak
C:\0qw6vege.exeW32/Autorun.worm.by

How would I go about removing them without paying 89.00?

I would appreciate the help even though I am not real tech savy.

Re: Cant get McAffe to install

Enable Windows Firewall to afford some protection.

Try scanning using the free version of these two tools, let them remove anything they find and reboot if asked to immediately.

Ensure that Windows is totally up to date and that you are using the latest version of Internet Explorer (8) and NOT any beta versions, if the latter uninstall them.

You should be able to install afterwards.
