I am sorry to hear what happened.

You cannot install Mcafee on a Chromebook. Chromebooks are not like windows or mac computers and everything that can be installed is done through the gogle app store. As for viruses I do not think you are a traditional windows type virus but there could be something wrong with the computer.

What I would suggest is you look over this article and perform a reset of the chromebook. Since the chromebook saves everything online a reset should get it back in working order without you loosing anything.
