I just activated my S23 Ultra today and now I'm getting virus warnings and when I click on them I get a McAfee site. After the scan, I get a pirchase sceeen. I have run the samsung security and they both show clear. Do I really have a virus?

Doesn't sounds like it, but likely some free app that was recently installed is spamming your phone with these messaged designed to look like a security issue and a convinient solution for a price. Check your latests apps, maybe their reviews to see if there are any other users reporting it.
