Help!!

I have just purchased this antivirus protection from Mcafee and can't get it to run beause I keep getting a message from Security Shield which I think is another virus protection service.  I tried to uninstall it but didn't see it on "my computer" or the uninstall programs.  I have windows xp.  How can I get Mcafee installed and running.  Also I keep getting porn sites coming up, how can I stop that.

Hi,

Moved this to Malware Discussion > Home User Assistance.

There is an excellent removal guide here:  http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-my-security-shield

Scroll down the page as the first links you see are all advertising.

These fake anti-malware things get past most antivirus applications unfortunately.

I trust that your machine is XP SP3 and fully updated?
