Repeated McAfee alerts

1170 Views 0 Replies 1 Participant Last post by  themudshark
Hey folks!

Wish I knew how it started but anyway... now McAfee pops up several times a day warnings on 3 files. Here are screen shots of the messages:

The message reads: Potentially Unwanted Program Detected.
Here are the names of the 3 files as per McAfee:

All 3 files are locked files in a temp directory.

I always choose "Remove the program" and press OK

The next window that opens says: To remove these programs using the McAfee uninstaller, click OK. Or, click Cancel and then manually remove them using the vendor's uninstaller. Programs that may have been installed as a bundle or suite are about to be removed. You may have accepted a license agreement for these programs.

I always press OK.

The next window that opens says: The Potentially Unwanted Program cannot be removed. McAfee recommends that you try to remove the program using Add or Remove Programs in Windows.

I always press OK.

At any rate these programs are still hiding (?) on my PC and UI'd like to get rid of them. Any ideas?

I have Windows XPsp2 and I also do have, and use, UltraVNC. AVG does not complain about these files.

Thx much, all...
