That depends on what it lloks like. If it's a small blue circle going round, McAfee is busy doing something - downloading and installing updates, or running a scan. If it's a box with a little 'i' in it, McAfee is waiting to tell you something, so double-click on the icon to see what it is.

If it is animated then McAfee is working on something... If it is static then there is alert for you. Please double click the icon to know what is the alert. I hope this answers.

Hi,

I don't know why, but I really laughed at this..

McAfee: HEY YOU, Yeah, you, we got your scan results, you been doing some dangerous surfing recently? yeah? really? Such a shame.
