Hold off on that McAfee patch!

McAfee AV Patch Leaves Some Computers Unbootable | Maximum PC

Oopsy-daisy! According to complaints on McAfee's message board, a mandatory service pack for the company's antivirus VSE 8.7 software has left some machines unbootable. The update, which was issued on May 27 and later pulled on June 2, was intended to squash minor security bugs, but also inadvertently flagged some Windows system files as malware.

This is another reason why I recommend NOT using one of the big commercial anti-virus programs.
I recommend using AVG Free.
