It's Real-Time Scanning (the active protection) that is trying to start up and obviously isn't succeeding....assuming that windows stays with that gray bar at the top for a long time.
Try running the Virtual Technician to see if it will find and fix things: http://mvt.mcafee.com/
If not try Uninstalling everything via Control Panel > Programs
Then run the MCPR cleanup tool, reboot and reinstall from the online account.
If all that fails, contact Technical Support. It's free by phone or online chat and linked under Useful Links at the top oif this page.
I just uninstalled and ran the clean toll - problem appears fixed - thanks
Glad to hear it. Good luck.
