Mcafee virus alert keeps popping up

Hello all,

I have a small problem, on my main computer the virus dialog keeps popping up, it's no big deal other than a minor annoyance (and it has usually 3 to 20 items) but I think that it contributes to the BSOD problem that I have when doing mid level tasks (like playing a YouTube video sometimes), and my computer can clearly handle that as it is very powerful. I dont know for sure, but i think that it does that when I don't move my mouse for some time, but I don't know for sure. I press the fix button however, a few minutes later it keeps popping up. Please help because I really don't want to reinstall the OS.

Thanks, Tim

Re: Mcafee virus alert keeps popping up

Can you post a screenshot of the "virus dialog" pop-up? I'd like to see what this is before offering any advice.
