Error: Some components of Active Shield are either missing or might not have been installed properly. Sound familiar? Active Shield errors are related to components of McAfee products that have become corrupted or missing.
Fixing these errors can be a pain and involves uninstalling McAfee, reinstalling McAfee, editing your autoexec.bat file, and other complicated steps. Sometimes you get these errors when you dont even use the McAfee products because perhaps the software came with your computer but you prefer using an alternate anti-virus program.
