    Dos/Alureon and Win32/kovter virus


      I have been running the McAfee security center for years on all my PCs and have always felt my computers were secure until recently.  My PC was acting a little odd so I decided to run a full scan with McAfee, however it crashed about a third of the way through, I tried it again with the same result.  I then ran microsoft's malicious software removal tool and it found 2 viruses Dos/Alureon and 2 versions of Win32/kovter, if I am running real time scanning with McAfee how did these viruses get past it?  I still cant run a full scan with McAfee so is this product full of garbage and doesnt deliver the protection I thought I was getting?  Is it time to turn to another security program?
