Having trouble downloading new version of McAfee keeps rejecting my ID and password


I used to have a windows vista pc and apart from having to worry about viruses, like you are, I was spending more and more time every day just waiting around for it!
My advice: check out ubuntu.com
Ubuntu linux is a free open-source OS which will run your pc MUCH faster than vista ever did, and is secure, unlike windows. You can even try it first without installing it, using a USB stick.

Iam not able complete remove virus from pc


You must boot into Safe Mode after restarting. The virus wont have a chance to load. From there, run the Mcafee scan and delete the viruses. After restart, it should be gone, if not, let me know as there are other methods.
