Probably due to Webadvisor.

Go to   the Green/Red McAfee icon at top right of page, click Options and select as shown below:

If that fails to cure it.  Go to Control Panel : Programs and Features and uninstall McAfee WebAdvisor

Then go to the Chrome App store and download it again from there.  Make sure the settings are changed as above.

3 points of interest here :

1 - "every time i open Google Chrome it takes me to McAfee's own launch page"

     What exactly is the URL in the address bar of this launch page?

     Take a screenshot if you can and select or highlight the topmost part of the screen

2 - "It .. warns me that their launch page is .. dangerous"

     That I assume is WebAdvisor kicking in and complaining about the site that Chrome is trying to load as its

      home page. If the home page is a genuine McAfee web page WebAdvisor should not be doing that.

3 - "it wont let me change it in settings"

     You mean Chrome settings? Like this?

      You must be trying to set a page via option 3 in 'On startup'

       What message do you get when you try to set a startup page?
