Everytime I start my computer Mcafee displays a message stating that my computer is at risk.

I open mcafee and the firewall is turned off. I try turning it on but a couple of seconds later it turns itself off.

A few days ago it did detect and supposidly remove a Trojan.

I am running windows 7.

I have used SuperAnti Spyware but this didnt find anything.

I have also used TDSSKiller but this shows nothing.

I have also used Malwarebytes and this found nothing.

I did go through the qurantine items in Mcafee and found a file called consirv.dll, I have since deleted all quarantined items in all programs I use.

Almost forgot that I also used ESAT online scanner as well but this also found nothing.

It does seem as though i have a virus of some sort. I don't really want to be using my computer without a firewall.

Any help would be reallt appreciated.

Kind Regards
