What sort of viruses are you worried about?

Viruses in files downloaded can be detected with a normal virus scanner once they have been downloaded (but before they are opened)

Other than that, (and lots of popup windows opening when you leave a site, which can be prevented by temporarily turning off javascript or not visiting porn sites) I don't know what a virus scanner would protect against.

It sounds to me like another case of McAfee creating a product where there is no need (they have a PDF virus scanner believe it or not, dispite the fact that no one has ever created a PDF virus).
