RE: aasskk

That detection states that McAfee knows it as Generic.dx!cnu. However should you ever find that McAfee fails to detect something or incorrectly detects something follow the procedures outlined here:

None of the major anti-virus applications, whether it be McAfee, Norton, Kaspersky or whatever, can protect against everything that is out there. It's wise to also keep one or two anti-spyware application on hand, keep your machine up to date and surf wisely.
There are several anti-malware applications recommended here:

If you are still having a problem I suggest scanning using Superantispyware and Malwarebytes - free versions, both included in that link. Make sure they are updated first and let them remove anything they find. Reboot if asked to.

RE: aasskk

foad_elmi2001, I just realised that you are in Iran, and because McAfee is an American company and this forum is U.S.-based I am prevented by U.S. law from providing assistance.
You can't obtain assistance from anyone here or at McAfee Support.

Please see:

Sorry about that. Perhaps if your government changed its ways, things would be different.
