I get a popup message from McAfee everytime I boot up my system

Whenever I  boot up my system I get a popup message as follows:  McAfee VirusScan....Some components of ActiveShield are either missing or might not have been installed properly.  I click OK and the message goes away.  My security seems to be OK but what is the deal with this message????
