I have the latest mcafee anti-virus but a virus-mimic program has come up on my home DESKTOP pc & blocked my internet access
A pop-up .......Internet security........... keeps popping up stating that I have virus & trojans & doesnt allow me to access the internet
when I run the mcafee scan it states NO Virus found
request assistance on how to rid off this virus-mimicing pop-up
I am using my laptop to write the above
McAfee won't block it as a virus because it isn't one. It's a program, like any other, but it's a Fake AV program.
There's a removal guide at http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-vista-internet-security-201 2 which should clear it from your PC. If you have any problems, download and run the McAfee Stinger program (you can get it from HERE).
