VIRUS alert?

Was doing a search on "leaking head gaskets 4.6 triton" The ford forum came up and while I was in it a "McAfee" download appeared and stated it needed to upgrade my Mcafee?????
With out thinking I accepted and it seems now I have a virus on my computer.
pup-fnk
pup-fps
and browsefox

I ran my normal Mcafee scan and it found and removed the pup-fnk but could not remove the pup-fps.
Can someone look into this and tell me how to get rid of this crap?
