In this month, this is fourth time my computer getting infected by bogus scan... McAfee is the program it didnt kill. I went to location where the bogus exe is preset. /C/users/<name>/Appdata/Roaming/<xxxx> and tried multiple scan with mcafee. no use. it simply declared no infection. I tried to delete the exe but since exe is already windows didnt allow me to delete it... i finally used process explorer to kill the fake scan and then removed the exe manually....
Actually when the fake scan was running it didnt allow any programs to open..no task manager, no windows defender, no regedit...nothing... but it allowed McAfee... If i could open any of these programs i can kill its execution...but i was surprised why it didnt kill mcafee... probably it knows mcafee given by ATT is useless ..lol.
All,,, please beaware of this fake scan... It'll stop all process... only way to get rid off is to kill it... I need to buy a better internet security software and safeguard my computer....
Either provide a better quality security software or dont suggest everyone to use mcafee.

I recommend MSE (Microsoft Security Essentials); it's free, runs light, and does a great job.
