Help: McAfee Stops working after Windows Vista Update or Dell PC Tune up Registery Maintenance

I have a dell Studio one computer which came with a McAfee subscription for 3 years. The problem that I am having is that, every time their is a windows update dealing with Windows Vista or when my computer runs dell pc tune up  Registery Maintenance, McAfee stops working after the system restarts. So I have to uninstall and reinstall McAfee everytime.

I had this problem with my old studio one computer which eventually crashed so dell replaced it with a new one, and with my new studio one I am still having the same problems.

Can someone tell what sms to be the problem?

Thank you

I would recommend you to avoid using Registry Maintenance, because I guess it's removing some of the McAfee's registry keys while doing the maintenance so after you restart the computer it makes the McAfee programs to either disable or corrupt.

Moreover, rather than using Registry Maintenance you shall use McAfee's PC Optimization> Quick Clean to clean all the broken/ unwanted registry keys and avoid any such instances in future
