While I haven't seen this issue or can provide a fix, it would be helpful if you could include a post of the event log messages that are being spammed. Also, there might be some clues on your system in a folder named "McAfeeLogs". This is usually in the temp folder. Of course this depends on what account the installer was run under initially.

Thank you for your reply. In trying to remember everything I wanted to include to be helpful, I forgot one of the most important ones. Sorry about that and thank you!!!!
I will definitely see what I can find in those temp log files.
This problem is caused by the Windows Installer timing out after 30 seconds. This could be because the server/cpu is too busy or a permission/security issue (installer gets an access denied and can't continue). It also could be that the Installer is waiting for something else or user input and never gets it.
Whatever the case, the only way to really track it down is to analyze the log files, specifically the msi log file.
In the case that the Windows Installer is just broken (from something else in your server setup) you can try installing the latest redistributable version.
