    did you purchase this or has it been 'spammed' onto your system..??

    don't follow any internet links as who knows where they lead..try first removing and cookies and temp files you have and do a history dump..

    Dump Mcafee as it's not that good..I use AVG from Grisoft and it's much better..

    try that first ( the dumps) and see if it's cured it..

    if it comes up automatically, you can use the msconfig option to stop it starting when you boot
