Went to McAfee site and downloaded MCPR and ran it. Apparently, that reg key and others were in there with "McAfee Gorilla Glue"! After reboot, ALL FIXED! Seems MSE realtime protection is looking at objects in HKLM/Software and could not resolve a null-void-empty-kindanowhere key like HKLM\Software\McAfee.
Anyway, thanks to both for the pointers. They actually helped me dig around for a fix to another boot time error concerning MS Office and Kernel after sp1 installed on win 7. There was a Mr. Fixit to resolve error id 10 messages.
Thanks again..... GO RAVENS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
