Hi, I'm not exactly sure if this is due to a virus or spyware, but after I installed the newest version of McAfee software, every time I shut down my computer, a message box pops up saying that Mcsvhost.exe has an error and something like "memory could not be written". In addition, when I reboot, the McAfee icon on my desktop always reverts to a different position than where I placed it (but it jumps to that same position every time). That's just a weird error; I'm not sure if it has anything to do with the Mcsvhost.exe thing. Finally, I occasionally hear a little click like the sound of a pop-up ad, but I don't actually see anything. I suspect this might be the (harmless?) remnant of spyware or malware I removed a while back, but I'd like to make sure about it. Thanks for any help.
