    Its running you cannot just delete it, you need to stop it running first.

    Probably embedded into your browser and hosts file also.

    If mcafee isn't deleting it for you try the free version of Malwarebytes.

    Thanks for the replies.


    After posting this thread I closed everything and reopened McAfee and ran a full scan (it has only just finished).


    So 5 hours and 5mins later it is now saying everything is fine.


    Thanks for everyone's help (I'm not computer techie and so panic whenever I see messages like this).

    McAfee lol. You trust that??

    It may have found that one but why did it allow it onto your system in the first place?
    I wonder what else you have on the system.

    Dump McAfee now...

The 3 years is coming to an end around Christmas week and so I will uninstall it and think I will buy Norton instead).

    When i setup a new laptop or shop built system the first thing i do i remove McAfee.

    A while back i have a spate of infected machines and they all had 2 things in common, McAfee and Limewire.

    Currently just using Win 10 inbuilt stuff, one bonus no lag. But its getting smarted and find the files i know to be dodgy. I have to keep replacing them and making harder for them to be detected.

    I did put Avast onto my Win10 initially, but it was laggy. New 8core16Thread 16GB system also.
