  • Can anyone advise me what SPECIFIC steps/procedure should I follow to remove this possible infection on my PC? I have made several runs in the past few days and am getting the above infection consistently. I'm aware about the suggested use of Microsoft Security Essentials which I have already downloaded but NOT installd yet hoping that I obtain SPECIFIC advice how to install the Security Essentials in presence of the 'McAfee's Total Protection' Antivirus Program so that I could avoid loosing the McAfee present settings by temporarily UNINSTALLING it while installing the Security Essentials Program.

    I have a X86-based Gateway GT5428 PC with VISTA Home Premium installed (6.0.6000 Build 6000) and Intel Pentium D CPU 3.20GHz (2 Cores), using 'McAfee's Total Protection' Antivirus Program.

    A prompt advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks in advance...!
