Where are "Potentially Unwanted Programs"?

Why doesn't my McAfee A/V+ product not find "Potentially Unwanted Programs" ?  It runs and runs with enormous Mem Usage, then "not responding" and must be shut down with ENDTASK..  Ran MVT but it says McAfee products working fine.  I want to delete any such programs from my PC -- can I do so manually?  Where are they hidden?  When I do backups to system, are they also included?

Thanks.
