Default Mcafee Online Scanner?

Hi

How trust worthy is Mcafee online scanner (free)...i have Trend Micro and that says im clean but i just did the Mcafee scan and it said i had one worm...could it be just saying that to make me buy it?

I was scanning to check if i had a virus as my pc is freezing all the time

Thamx

well this thing is you might as well download AVG Free or something like that because online scanners are not that good.
Here is a link to AVG FREE which by the way is a very good program:
