Many people have reported issues with McAfee products. First suggestion is to uninstall it and temporarily substitute Microsoft Security Essentials. You also need to use the official McAfee Consumer Products Removal (MCPR) tool before trying to install a different security product.

MCPR tool

Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows

Once you've got McAfee removed and MSE installed, see if the problem is fixed. If not, try to troubleshoot by doing a clean boot (AKA: clean startup).

EDIT: Sometimes the link to McAfee doesn't work. You can also download the MCPR tool from here:
