McAfee keeps blocking Chrome.exe, see's it as a virus? Any fix or solution?

So I have a system running 32bit windows 7 environment.   This machine was freshly reimaged because of this issue.   When the virus console is enabled we cannot get Chrome.exe to install.  It will block it and  give us an alert and says its a virus.

If I disable McAfee it will installed but as soon as I enable it will kill Chrome.  Please help with fix???

It gives us an virus scan alert message,  name:Chrome.exe: in folder: shows the path,  I will have go on site to post the full message. On my way there now.

could be a genuine detection then - please post a screen shot of the actual error, or perhaps download Chrome again?

Moved this to Corporate User Assistance as probably the best spot for it.
