Error: Threatfire interfers with Virus Scan

I'm hoping someone can help.  I am trying to install McAfee and get an error that comes up saying that Threatfire interfers with Virus Scan.  I've tried to get rid of threatfire but I get an error message saying access denied!  I need to get rid of it in order to finish installing McAfee!

Any suggestion?
