For the forum to better able assist you you'll need to state what version of Windows you're running. Below are several ways to resolve this common startup error. A program is uninstalled incorrectly or, Windows malfunctions during that process, is the most common way this occurs.

1. Reinstall Mcaffee; Restart your computer; Then properly uninstall Mcaffee in the Add/Remove Programs Control Panel; Restart your computer. Since McCheapie is a terible program IMHO, uninstall Mcaffee then get and install AVG.

Then get free AVG Anti-virus 6.0 (I use) from http://www.grisoft.com

If you're having problems with all this, reply back to my post. If you haven't got a Mcaffee CD to use there is a simple edit of a particular file (system.ini) I'll post later if needed. The above is the easiest way.

2. Please see Click Here the Microsoft Knowledge Base Article on this subject.

Thanks for the compliment about my site. :)

I'm not going to advise you to uninstall McAfee VirusScan. It's a decision that you alone are going to have to make. I uninstalled it a long time ago because I found it to be a memory hog and very problematic. (n) I've been using eTrust EZ Antivirus for the past 2 years and have had no problems with it. (y)
