Anyone else having problems with Sysinternals Antivirus?

Help.  I am but a small-time, fairly unsophisticated, home computer use who has McAfee installed for full protection.  Last night, out of the blue, a virus warning presnts itself from Sysinternals Antivirus and tries to scare me that a Trojan horse or two is sitting in my computer.  The bottom line is it is attempting to get me to purchase their product for around $53. But I have McAffee. So when I run McAffee's full scan, all of a sudden I am not confident that my McAfee is truly running.  On one occasion McAfee tells me I am in the clear; on another occasions - I attempted to run the full scan more then once - it said I have more then one error.  Every minute of so this Sysinternals Antivirus pops up all during the scanning process; last night I spent over 2 hours constantly deleting this opoup from my task bar.  Now I am convinved my McAffee has also been compromised.  Help.  McAffee customer service can you folks help me?  I pruchased your profuct online several months ago and now when I try to access customer service I see charges for getting your help.  WHy is McAffee failing to overcome this issue when I run a full scan - or try to run a full scan?  Please help as I am about to throw my computer into the ocean and get a new one; if I do that nI will definitely not buy McAfee protection ever again.  But if it is something on my end, I can be educated.  Thanks for any help and support.  (By the way, if this antivirus is truly a legitimate product, someone needs to get on their case in how they do business.)  Thanks.  tw (in Hawaii)
