I don't see the connection between your browser and a virus scan, unless your doing an online scan. But there's no point in doing a McAfee online scan if you have McAfee anti-virus already installed in your system.
1. Update your anti-virus online then reboot in Safe Mode and run a full system scan there.
2. Try this online scan under Firefox:Trend Micro

3.Do you have any anti-spyware
installed? If not download and update all
of the following:Reboot your computer in Safe Mode
and run the anti-virus scan and anti-spyware scans there.
If you are not sure how to boot in Safe Mode there is a tutorial here: Safe Mode
See if that helps
