    McAfee tray icon disappears - unable to open security center 9.0

      I recently had a virus infection on my desktop, so I d/l and installed McAfee Total Protection 2009. After cleaning the PC with McAfee and Malwarebytes, I can not open the McAfee security center program. After rebooting my WinXP PC, the M tray icon appears briefly, then disappears. When I try to open the program from Start>Programs, the splash screen appears briefly, then nothing happens.

      I've tried uninstalling/reinstalling McAfee using the procedure described in many of these posts, but nothing helps. I also tried using SafeMode, but the same thing happens.

      This is a similar problem to this post: http://community.mcafee.com/showthread.php?t=217640

      but I do not have the registry entry:

      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon_disable
