You don't state what McAfee software you are using, nor any information regarding operating system, service pack if applicable.

If the software reports it is running and OK I would disregard the Event Viewer entries, if not you can always contact  Technical Support free of charge by phone or online chat - see the link below.

But first try running the Virtual Technician to see if it finds and fixes any problems:  http://mvt.mcafee.com/

Sorry - running McAfee LiveSafe Internet Security

Version 12.8

Build 12.8.988

Came with my Dell XPS desktop.

I have fully updated Windows 8.1

This same question has been asked numerous times and someone sends out a PM to get some file to folks to workaround the issue.  Then the threads get closed, and people are asked to open a new one.

I'll alert him but it may be a while.   That's why I suggested contacting support yourself.   He works out of that department anyway.

As Hayton says it is only indicating that logs have reached their maximum size so nothing serious.

Anyway I will alert him.

This is what you get when McAfee writes messages to a log file and the file reaches its maximum size. It's been reported before in a number of threads and there may some kind of unofficial fix for it - have a look at this thread, where Selvan may have found a way to stop the error messages (but no promises) -
