found this on mcafee help site:
What do I do if SecurityCenter is 'missing components'?
If you receive this error message, complete the following:

Close all application windows.
Click Start, then Run and type the following into the 'Open' field exactly as shown: REGSVR32 MSXML.DLL
Click OK.
Restart the computer

hope this helps

What versions of virus-scan and security center do you have? What is the exact error message that you're getting?

I have McAfee version 9
The Active Shield message says: "Some components of ActiveShield are either missing or might not have been installed properly. Please reinstall ActiveShield. If you have started your computer in safe mode, please restart your computer in normal mode to enable McAfee VirusScan."

Step 1: Verify other anti-virus programs are not installed

1. Open Add/Remove Programs located in the Control Panel.
2. Go down the list of installed programs and see if any anti-virus programs are installed (other then McAfee VirusScan).
3. If another anti-virus program is found, it is recommended to uninstall them to resolve this error.
