    McAfee as far as virus'...

      Last week I purchased a new laptop and the salesman asked me what I used to protect the laptop I currently had.  When I told him Mcafee, as it is part of the package I have with my DSL provider.  He informed me that McAfee is always about a month behind and that is why it is possible to get a virus even if you have McAfee protection.  For the last few days I have a pop-up from McAfee that tells me my computer is at risk and to check the status to keep my PC protected.  When I check status, I am told to turn my firewall on and to make sure Real-Time Scanning is running.  R-T S is running, however the firewall is off.  Each time I turn it on, it immediately turns itself off and the pop-up reappears.  Does anyone have that issue or know how to fix this?  Thanks  The beginning of my question is to give "Change" and "Aaron" info from a non-McAfee employee that have this discussion with many people about this...
