    McAfee bots


    I reinstalled Win 10 and ever since I keep getting McAfee pop ups.
    I tried resetting my browser and ran the McAfee removal tool. Any ideas?
    Thanks

    It seems to happen anytime. Not just at browser opening. Here is a screen shot.

    I tried to upload a picture, it said it was up loading?
    Well anyway it says
    You are at risk
    Your pc is not protected by any industry grade protection.
    Set up McAfee Total protection Now.

    Then click for details. When I do... Then it jumps to wanting credit card number, email address and phone number.
    I don't think it from McAfee!
    Maybe I need to run a malware program?

    Run your AV and also AdwCleaner, above link.

    Have you downloaded any software like CCleaner or others that may have McAfee attached as a download ? Did the McAfee cleanup tool find entries ?

    Manually check your registry and system files and delete any unwanted/suspicious files. If situation appears more complex consider a Reset.
