Firewall Update 12.0.338 causes McAfee Service Host to stop working

Downloaded McAfee updates this morning and was told to restart computer.


Restarted and keep getting message that McAfee Service Host has stopped working.


What was downloaded was McAfee Firewall 12.0, 12.0.338, 8/27/11.


Real Time Scanning has also been turned off and I can't turn it back on.


Computer is unprotected.


Running Vista Home Premium 32 bit SP1 (and yes I know this is not optimal.  I'm working toward getting SP2). 


Bought machine in 2007 and have had McAfee all that time.


Ran Virtual Technician, but problem still not fixed.  Health Check Files attached.
