We had several users getting this. Sure you have no other AV software present?
First when you uninstalled did you use the pragrams and features to remove mcafee then the MCPR removal tool to clean up the left overs?
Reboot then reinstall?
Also performing a manual Update should resolve this issue the vast majority of times. Try this

I was able to resolve the issue. It appears the real fix to the problem was in uninstalling McAfee. This time, I used Windows uninstall feature and then followed it by running the MCPR removal tool. I then re-installed the McAfee product and all has worked well since then.
The key was running the MCPR removal tool. That appears to have made the difference in all my various efforts to correct the issue. In prior attempts to fix the issue where I only used the Windows program removal tool (without the MCPR execution), it seems to have left some files/objects hanging around which still caused problems. So, by additionally running MCPR and cleaning up any leftover files and then doing a clean re-install, all worked well.
Yes I have seen several users who had Mcafee auto updated get a corrupt install seems yours was 1.
Glad it is now fixed
