    I have Mcafee and ran a scan nothing shows up but I'm kind of paranoid about these things.

    Avast and Malwarebytes.

    I wouldn't use McAfee if they paid me a monthly fee. Of course, I wouldn't run Norton, CA or Zone Alarm either.

    McAfee's good. You might also try Adaware, Spybot, and Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware

    I run Kaspersky. Expensive, but it gets the job done.
