    On-Access Scan Message Virus?

      Can anyone help me?

       

      I have the "On-Access Scan Message" box come up on my lap top and there is no way to get rid of it.  I assume this is a virus mascerading as a McAfee product.  How do I get rid of it?

       

      Hope some one can help.

       

      thanks

          Further info.  I googled this issue and another forum (Tech Guy.org) had a reply to this issue (pasted down below).  Would this be recommended as an answer to my issue?  Should I follow these instructions?

           

          "Click here to download HJTsetup.exe
          Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.

           

          Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
          By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
          Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Addition Tasks dialogue.
          Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
          Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
          At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
          Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
          Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
          Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
          Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
          DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required. "
