Hi

While Sasetup3.0.1.165.exe should refer to McAfee SiteAdvisor, without knowing what program you are reinstalling, it is impossible to exclude the possibility something else is active.

Minimum further information required:

  • Which particular McAfee software are you trying to reinstall?
  • What virus was detected and by which software?
  • What prompted you to reinstall your software?

Regards

Unfortunately when the viruses hit, it first appeared on my MS Security Center and listed a number of viruses.  In my panic I did not write them down - sorry.

As I attemtped to use McAfee to resolve the situation, McAfee at one point suggested that I re-install their software.  That is where I received the message previously mentioned.  As to which program I was attempting to install, I believe it was the package that contains the following:

SecurityCenter

VirusScan

PersonalFirewall

SiteAdvisor

Anti-Spam

Background (offered for what it's worth) - the site I was on that began this mess was one that has several photos, one of which was titled something like "photos Disney doesn't want you to see."  The photo that I clicked was one of what appeared to be Snow White being led away by a police officer.  Once I clicked on the picture, the next photo that appeared was of two women with cutout t-shirts, exposing their breasts, but decorated as Disney characters that covered their (sorry for the technicals) nipples and aerolae.  Certainly not what I was expecting.  That's when the MS Security Center popped up with all the viruses.

I know this may not be enough, but I am very concerned that my PC in still infected.  I did restore my PC to a point on the day before this event, but I don't know if this would have eliminated the viruses.

Any insight is greatly appreciated.

Moved to Malware Discussions > Home User Assistance for further attention.

Try right-clicking thet taskbar McAfee icon and updating.

Boot into Safe Mode with Networking by tapping F8 while booting up and go to Computer (My Computer in XP) right-click the hard drive and select scan.

See if any malware is discovered.

If not try the solutions outlined in this document:  http://community.mcafee.com/docs/DOC-1294
