There is a known issue with Microsoft not recognizing your Anti-Virus at start-up. It usually corrects itself in a few minutes. My concern is that you have (SpyBot S&D) installed. It is no longer recommended to use, for it conflicts with your McAfee Anti-Virus especially if the "Tea Timer" is active.
I recommend uninstalling it , and would elect to use Malwarebytes (Free) as a second opinion/ODS,or compliment to your McAfee Protection. It is compatible and all you need to do is update it before scanning each time.To keep it Free simply DO NOT accept any Free Trial offers/or Activate the Pro Version during the Download/Installation process.
(Click on Start/Type in "Services.Msc", then when the program "Services" comes up, click on it)
Follow the instructions directly below....
As for your Windows Action Center not recognizing McAfee. Simply go to "Services.msc" or "Microsoft Management Control, and scroll down to where you see (Security Center)- WSCSV, Double left click on it,and (Disable) click apply make certain (Service is stopped) Then go back and repeat the procedure, and set Start-up as (Automatic (D), Click Apply and make certain the service is started.
You should now see that WAC recognizes McAfee. Please post back your results...
