I got the same thing recently. Here's what I did to get rid of the virus.

Go to the internet and download MalwareBytes software. Go to www.malwarebytes.org. I then started Winows in Safe Mode with Networking. Click on Administartor to log into another account. Install the software and download the latest updates. Run a scan. The software got rid of 22 trojan viruses and spyware. Restart the computer when done. You might want to run a full scan.

Good luck.

That is pretty funny, but I would run Malwarebytes too as it will pick up on different problems...McAfee is far from the best AV on-line
