I recently bought a macbook air,  I'm not great at tech so I was worried about an ad from McAfee saying I had been infected with a virus , I've cleared all history and although I half think the ass a scam I wondered if I should download extra internet security  ?

Thanks gromit 

Thing is...if you don't have McAfee, they can't possibly know anything about your current status.

You'll probably get many more of these, so don't be tempted to respond/reply/get involved.

Thank you gingejbee

I put ABP (Add Block Plus) on my MacBook Air laptop.  I think it was recommended by Chris (buenchico) and I don't get any problems at all with it.  Here's a link yansee, take a look and see what you think.  Good luck.

I get lots of these in spite of not ever having had McAfee - it's a scam.
