Windows Security vs. McAfee

Dell Inspiron 1570

Specs: Windows 7, U7300
My McAfee subscription is current. It says that my computer is protected, but Windows Security says I have 20 viruses found in My Documents, Shared Documents, and Hard Drive. It also says that Windows Security is affected by virus. Is suggests downloading "DistAV_2013_b8.exe" from "" - what is that? Is it safe? It's also suggested downloading or running "jucheck.exe." What should I do? Do I trust McAfee when it says everything is OK or Microsoft Security?

I would suggest to unload McAfee using MCPR.exe and then installing avast free which IMO is far superior to either of the above.

Some HELP in posting on plus free progs and instructions Cheers

By Windows Security - do you mean Microsoft Security Essentials and Defender or something else. Note: nowadays their a lot of fake anti-viruses that can be called and look like standard windows applications.

Maybe thats why it says Windows Security is infected.

I'm using Microsoft Security Essentials on one of my PCs - it works very reliably. Several times it saved my PC.

I personally do not like Mcafee, Norton etc etc. All this heavy antiviruses doesn't seem to provide "heavy" protection. Even Avast seems to be better...

;) Security Made Easy ;)
