Don't fret over it- Mcafee is garbage anyway. Go with Kaspersky, or if you want decent free ones try Cure It and/or Clamwin.

you didn't happen to setup the backup feature did you? cuz that will do the trick as well...

As Mentali$T said, Avast is the best free anti-virus you can get. it catch's virus's faster then avg and also includes some shields that avg doesn't.
