But I think first we should uninstall McAdee. Then scan with Malewarebytes and it will deleted maleware and then again can install McAfee. This will be the good procedure
Nonsense. Please stop giving weird advice to people otherwise we may have to stop your access to these forums. Please leave these things to us Moderators and McAfee staff
Malwarebytes FREE should be used and it can be downloaded, updated and run in Safe Mode with Networking if the malware preventds normal dektop use.

@Hemant Koli, McAfee, like all other antivirus vendors has problems with these fake anti-malware pests as they all involve clicking on something by the user to activate, even if it's the dismiss 'X'. However McAfee, like other antivirus makers has tools such as Stinger, see that link.
No protection from McAfee for Smart Fortress 2012
Not yet. Nor from Microsoft either, I haven't done the rounds to check, but I'll bet none of the vendors have caught this one. It's not only McAfee which didn't see it coming. I don't know how this one arrives, but the usual routes are well known - email links, downloads from malicious websites, downloads from poisoned websites, drive-by attacks (which btw only work if the code on the page can find a vulnerability in an out-of-date program like Java or Flash).Message was edited by: Hayton on 07/03/12 14:58:49 GMT
Whether or not it's a true variant of the first Smart Fortress release I don't know (the VirusTotal information does not make that clear) but as of one hour ago it was still being detected by only 8 out of 43 AV vendors.
It is a Smart Fortress variant. If you do not enter the registration code, your desktop is changed to a blank screen, it disables taskmanager, registry editor and hides all your start menu items - basically, you can do nothing.
