MSN virus and security software

My Daughter had a mini dell notebook for Christmas that came with McAfee security preloaded for 1 month. She seems to have picked up a virus by using MSN, she has opened a link saying there was a picture and she now has problems with MSN and is sending the link to other people.

I am running a full scan with McAfee but was wondering can I download avg free as well as having McAfee on?

http://www.malwarebytes.org/ is better than spy bot (for me anyway)

I agree it's never a good idea to run two AV apps side by side on the same computer.They both contend for the same resources resulting in system crashes, freezes and other instabilities.
If it were my problem I would run an online scan from Trend from:
http://housecall.trendmicro.com/
This should pick up any malware and deal with it.
I would uninstall your current AV and download Avira anti-virus free from:
http://www.free-av.com/
install and run that.It is one of the best and most sensitive free AV apps out there.
