it doesn't sound like a virus, it sounds like adware... try using an
anti-adware product like adaware (http://www.lavasoftusa.com /)

Most likely is spyware rather than a virus.  There are a number of
different little nasties that provide pop-up advertising, hijack your
browser and all that good stuff.  There are some other good
anti-spyware/trojan programs you can download and use for free that do a
good job against this kind of crap.  

Superantispyware

AVG Antispyware

Another suggestion is to get rid of McAfee and go with another AV such as
Kaspersky or NOD32.
