Thank you for that response. You say it is scareware but now I do not know if there is something on my computer that should not be there or not, as McAfee fund nothing. I cannot remember whether I clicked on anything when the message appeared or whether the scan started without my doing anything. I turned the computer off ftom the Start button within a couple of seconds after the scan seemed to start. Clicking on the link you have given me may not be of help to you as I cannot remember the precise wording of the message but it was as near to the heading as I can recall. If you can help me further on what I have given you I would be grateful. My previous laptop had MalwareBytes from Bleeping Computer and I wonder if I could use it on this new Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit laptop.
Please advise if you think I have a problem, I am now concerned that McAfee has been bypassed and my security compromised.
