Thanks for the offer and I may well do that. BUT I pay good money to McAfee to protect me from exactly this kind of thing.
I have McAfee Security Center 12.8 with the last update at may 1. Yet the webget malware walked past it like it wasn't even there.
Shame on you mcafee!
You are quite welcome. I did notice you stated your last update being 5/1/2014? Do you have "Automatic Updates" selected? For my personal current "Engine Version" is as the following;
McAfee Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware
Version : 16.8
Last update: 5/6/2014
Engine Version: 1881.0
Engine Creation Date: 5/6/2014
As for your decision to utilize the removal guides mentioned, this is entirely your perogative.
It couldn,t hurt....
Wishing you all the very best
