Thanks I'm away for the weekend I will try that when I'm back - although my scan doesn't start it just says 'pending%'
You are quite welcome Please let us no how it goes.

Hi thanks for your help. I followed the instructions but that didn't fix the problem. In the end I used the McAfwe Removal Tool (again) and then manually removed the leftover registry items that related to McAfee. After a restart I then installed Security Center fresh and after an update all has been well.
Glad to hear that all is OK now
Quite often doing a Uninstall/Reinstall does indeed resolve such issues.
I am marking this discussion as 'Correctly Answered' and locking it.
As future customers/Users can be aware of how to resolve this issue.
All the Best.
