    McAfee's entry is not very helpful; removal instructions are non-existent.

    Again, have you contacted McAfee?

    Do a couple online scans from this list

    http://forums.techguy.org/t110854.html

    Then get
    SpywareBlaster http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html
    AdAware SE 1.05 http://www.majorgeeks.com/download506.html
    SpyBot S&D 1.3 http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/

    DL them (they are free), install them, check each for their
    definition updates
    and then run AdAware and Spybot, fixing anything
    they say.

    In SpywareBlaster - Always enable all protection after updates
    SpyBot - After an update run immunize

    Do these and reboot before the next step.

    Then get HiJack This http://downloads.subratam.org/hijackthis.zip , put
    it in a permanent folder (C:\HJT) , run it , DO NOT fix anything, post the
    log here.
