Probably the old software is still lingering.   Uninstall everything via Control Panel > Programs then run the MCPR cleanup tool and reboot.

Reinstall the software and make sure it's up to date.

Also make sure your system is totally up to date, including Internet Explorer, even if you don't use it McAfee does.
