    McAfee update causes McAfee Service Host problem on boot

      McAfee did an update to McAfee Security Center last Tue (05/31/2011) and upon reboot it gave the message "McAfee Service Host has encountered a problem and needs to close" and then I cannot use Firefox or my old IE6.  It prevents either browser from getting to their home page.  There may be other things going on internal to McAfee, but the big problem to me is Internet access.  Prior to the upgrade the computer was working fine (a Dell laptop running XP SP2). If this is simply a file corruption, can a stage the correction in some way that I remove McAfee, regain access to the Internet, then use the McAfee cleanup tool, and then reinstall?
