RE: help with installation?

Best thing to do is to uninstall all the McAfee programs through Add/Remove Programs in Windows Control Panel.
Then run the McAfee Removal tool, which you can download here: How to uninstall or reinstall supported McAfee consumer products using the McAfee Consumer Products ...

Reboot again and reinstall the McAfee software from your CD again.

Let us know how it goes...
