A firefox window declared I needed to upgrade my video media player at the above site. McAfee blocked this download declaring it had viruses. Is this true?

Chosen solution

Sometimes a problem with Firefox may be a result of malware installed on your computer, that you may not be aware of.

You can try these free programs to scan for malware, which work with your existing antivirus software:

Microsoft Security Essentials is a good permanent antivirus for Windows 7/Vista/XP if you don't already have one.

Further information can be found in the Troubleshoot Firefox issues caused by malware article.

Yes, if you get such a notice or pop-up when visiting a website then this is likely a scam to seduce you to install some malware. You should never respond to such a request and delete files if they should get downloaded and nit run them.


You can do a malware check with several malware scanning programs on Windows computers.
Please scan with all programs because each program detects different malware.
All these programs have free versions.

Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of their databases before doing a scan.

You can also do a check for a rootkit infection with TDSSKiller.

I ran Microsoft security scanner with no virus or malware detected, so if I didn't have any why does McAfee still block the video player upgrade "http://watchnow.vpsdomain3.eu/?sov=64938901&hid=fvjnxhvlffpjflr&id=XNSX.0066992568341800856%3A%3A{S2}%3A%3A{S3}%3A%3A{S4}%3A%3A{S5)
