          Hi natasia,

          Could you please check whether the virus scan & DAT is uptodate,

          Open security center, click about and let me know what is the version of virus scan and DAT version ?

          Also let me know the followingd details:

          What is the computer's operating system ?

          Do you have any other security software installed in the computer ?

              Open security center, click about (to the right bottom) and check the version of DAT.

              If the DAT is uptodate, Run a full scan of mcafee and check for any detection from the following location: -

              Open security center - click View recent events to the left pane

              Cclick View log from the right pane

              Click the (+) symbol next to detection log

              Click scan information below that , and you will be able to find the results of the scan Scan log.JPG
