For a couple of weeks now, McAfee has been downloading the same update, but I it never opens up. When it finishes scanning, it says that there is something I need to look at but it pops up with a blank page. Also, my computer has been running slower since this started. I wanted to know if someone could figure out if it is a virus. I am running Windows XP. Thanks.

Here is my hijackthis log

Please run a scan with MalwareBytes, which you can get here:
. Download the program, update it and run a scan. This has a much faster scanner so you may wish to run a full scan. Please post this log aswell (it should popup in a little text file when finished scanning)

Allright, I think its running a little faster, but Mcafee still won't appear. Whenever I try to open it, the frame pops up but its a blank page. At first I thought it was all connected, but it seems that they are seperate things. So could I still have more viruses or is this a program specific error?

Do you have the McAfee install CD? I think it may be time for a reinstall... If you don't, you could always go free with software like avast....

It turns out McAfee wasn't compatible with IE8, so I reinstalled IE7 and it works. Thanks for the help.
