Mcafee takes 60 seconds to start

Today when I started the computer, mcafee took ages to start before the splash screen came up. Until then I could not use e-mail and connection to the internet was disabled. Have rebooted several times but still the same. Start up programs have not been altered, yesterday start up was fast, any ideas? reinstall?

I also get the message about symantec even though I uninstalled this several weeks ago when I got mcafee. I got the uninstall tool from symantec. picture attached from system and maintenance

Thanks in advance

It's quite possible that the leftover Symantec files are causing McAfee to react badly.

Try running the Norton/Symantec Removal Tool:

Hopefully that will do the trick.
