I assume you rebooted since it detected it?
Did it say what the detection was?
The version is either in "about" top right of security centre or via navigation (top right) and "about" centre left of screen.
Peackeeper thanks for your response.
I had rebooted the laptop several times after this virus issue surfaced - both before and after the FULL scan been executed.
McAfee Security Center does not detect that. Infact i have to accept that it is my guess. In task Manager i can see the rundll32.exe without any valid description. So it makes me think that the problem is with the rundll32.
a) This virus is so annoying that it jsut doesnt allow me to type or choose a menu. The scroll bar of all the windows (Excel, Explorer, Power point, Word) automatically scrolls up or down and the menu that i choose keeps jumping across the screen.
b) The mouse when used to click on an button (mouse is working properly tested in another laptop). The button just flickers continuously. But doesnt associate anything.
c) A few times while booting i get a beep sound. Initially i thought that to be an issue with the battery or keyboard. I executed the diagnostics tool shipped with Dell - Dell Support Center. It didnt find any problem. But i do not get this problem now.
If this sounds a bell you can let me know.
Will check for the version and update you. I know it shud be the latest version as i regularly update the patches. But i will check it and confirm
Work through the mentioned anti virus scanners especially getsusp, both stingers and malwarebytes and see if they see anything
Getsusp link might fail use this 1
