Automatic Updates - Installation Error

Every time a McAfee automatic update attempts to install on my computer, it will run for several seconds and then I get an installation error.  I've tried reinstalling the McAfee software several times, but it's still happening. I don't want to disable the automatic updates unless I have to - anybody have any ideas? Thanks. kj
