I have McAfee and was ruining a custom scan when suddenly it turned itself off. I tried to get back into it

on my desktop and it won't reopen. Earlier a certain web page i was looking at on internet explorer

suddenly closed and I went back to the previous page. Also, McAfee keeps telling me the website I'm on

is connected to suspicious sites, and it does it on almost every website. I checked my Windows Task

Manager and strange processes are running, not sure if they are malware/viruses or if they are normal.

These unknown processes include rundll2.exe, SaUI.exe, wuaclt.exe, alg.exe, mfevtps.exe, lass.exe,

winlogon.exe, smss.exe, ONENOTEM.EXE, and csrss.exe
Help would be greatly appreciated thanks.

Hi Fiona; welcome to GSF.

Those processes appear to belong to Windows and/or McAfee.
