That's Mcaffe for you...

Seriously though, try a fresh reinstall of Mcafee and see how it goes. Even before reinstalling it, do a scan for Spyware/Malware/Viruses.

You can try disabling everything from your start up...

Go into Start>Run>Msconfig...
Click the Startup tab, and select Disable All.

I had a problem like that on my laptop. It would download everything and run fine until I went to restart the computer. I would try starting it back up, and bang, dead. I reinstalled it and then it worked fine. I also had to disable the virus scan to get it to work before I realized. Hope that helps.
