HKU websites and McAfee scans

I have just read an old post that was very similar to my own problem

I have McAfee security paid through my O2 broadband, it is very good but I have noticed that when the scan gets to 96% that many HKU sites appear non that I would not dream of visiting Casino and porn.  The scan states nothing detected however when I click on the site report I see that there are 12 Trojans and over 1200 tracking cookies.  I always use Google Chrome or Firefox and can not find anything on the options.

below is a screen print of what I am seeing on the report,  should I be concerned? or is this normal?

Re: HKU websites and McAfee scans

Sorry for the deferred reply, I guess that should not be a problem. Anyhow, I would recommend you to clear all the computer’s & internet temporary files and check with another full scan and let us know the status. I would also recommend you to have Internet Explorer as your default browser (don’t worry you can still use your other browsers all well)
