McAfee Scan Error Message

I'm not able to complete a full McAfee scan. At different points in the scan I get a message stating:
Scanning has encountered a problem from which it cannot recover:
Error getting scan progress.

Can someone help me out here?

Thanks Vinod,

I was up all night trying to work this out. In reading the threads I saw where ExBrit suggested running the Superanti Spyware program. After running the Superanti spyware program I re-ran the McAfee scan and was successful.
I am suspicious I had a virus but everything seems to be back to normal this morning.

I appreciate your offer of help Vindo.
