About 30 minutes ago I was searching images on Google using Safari and i clicked on an image and two packages/folders downloaded into my downloads box. I tried to exit out and stop them but they stayed in the box. I wasn't sure what to do so I put the packages in the trash and emptied it. I have McAfee Virus Scan but I am not sure how to use it or if it will protect my computer over what just happened? I need help on how to run a virus scan or if I should do anything? I have a Mac OS X Version 10.5.8. I could use any help or information people might have.

Thank you,

Per McAfee, http://home.mcafee.com/root/landingpage.aspx?LPName=macmis_performics&culture=en-us&affid=736&aco=0&adid=Internet%20Security%20for%20Mac%20-%20Nonbrand%20-%20Tier%202&PPCid=GGSearch .

I've never seen an AV program...that did not come with instructions for use.
