This could happen in scenarios where during the update process, a registry key might remain after the update cycle is complete. In this situation, the update service may continue to request a system restart.
Could you please let us know how did you uninstall the McAfee products ? Did you use the removal utility ?

Thank you for answering!
I don't believe I used the actual McAfee removal utility. I'm pretty sure that I went to Programs and Features from the Control Panel and removed it from there by following the steps that it prompted me to follow.
Well there are chances where McAfee was not completely removed earlier, anyhow click on Useful Links on top of this page. Run the McAfee Removal Tool (MCPR) reboot the computer and reinstall the programs from your online account.
That should work…
I clicked on your link and followed the steps provided, but the problem still persisted.
I'm at my wits end with this.. nothing I do or try seems to work.
I did exactly as you said, and the problem still didn't go away.
I would like to know some information before we proceed further.
- Type of your Operating system with service pack details (Ex :windows Xp,Windows Vista ,Windows 7).

According to my System information, I don't have ANY service pack.
