This happens frequently on fresh installs and might due to a missing redistributable. Run McAfee removal tool and McAfee Pre-install tool.#
Then you can install it again. The pre-install tool will install the redistributable for you.
Uninstalling McAfee is pain. I installed Mcafee on my other device. It installed with the new GUi but after a system restart, it reverted to the old one. I guess i will have to wait until they force the new GUi because it is not the first time to have this problem with McAfee.

OMG! Why so many processes!!! I would hate to open my task manager if I was using McAfee.
I prefer ESET and Kaspersky's method. Only 2 processes for everything.
If you notice it is always listed as one of the least on system impact. That is why I think, because it splits up the processes so you have a bunch of micro/mini cpu usage and multitasking instead of one huge cpu hog process.
