You have to decide if you want to do a clean reinstall of Windows or do a restore to factory conditions. They aren't the same thing.

Did you first uninstall the manufacturer's supplied trial anti-virus (if any)? Did you then run the AV maker's cleanup utility?
If not, you need to do so.

SP1 won't install until all other relevant updates are already installed.
Only worry about it if it becomes the sole remaining update and still doesn't install.
You need to run the McAfee MCPR tool to get rid of the remaining bits that the uninstaller didn't touch....
  1. Download the removal tool from:

    http://download.mcafee.com/products/licensed/cust_support_patches/MCPR.exe
  2. Click Save, and save the file to a folder on your computer.
  3. Navigate to the folder where you saved the file.
  4. right-click on MCPR.exe and select 'Run as Administrator' to run the removal tool.
