When a scan is finished, you receive an alert informing you about the results of the scan. When McAfee detects a security threat during a scan, it first tries to handle the threat automatically according to the threat type. In case of a virus, Trojan, or tracking cookie on your PC, McAfee tries to clean or quarantine the infected file.
