More questions than answers..
You said you scanned your computer and found nothing. What did you scan it with?
When you installed McAfee Internet Security, did you completely uninstall the AV/FW that was previously on your computer. In other words, is this the only AV and Firewall you are using?
You said McAfee deleted ''MSAS'' 'for some reason'. These kind of things usually don't ''just happen''. Although I only use McAfee's VirusScan and Firewall and not the ''Suite'', they run quite nicely with MSAS. Could you elaborate a bit more on why/how you think McAfee ''deleted it''?
Are you on a specific webiste when you see the runtime error? Also, did you read the article Cursorcowboy originally posted, in ''sbambi's'' post?
While searching around, I found a post, which referenced your same Runtime error and they happen to use McAfee. (It may very well have been a coincidence and most likely has nothing to do with your problem)
The only help I can offer is telling you that I've had a great deal of success solving problems at McAfee's Forums. You might want to go to the section that says ''McAfee Internet Security Suite'' half way down the page. You also mentioned the ''anti-phishing filters''. It is noted here that SpamKiller, while attempting to update its anti-phishing filters from a site may cause your system to appear to lock up. There's plenty to read there, if you have the time and patience.
If nothing else, I would bookmark the McAfee Forum link. It may come in handy in the future. I seem to be in the minority here, but I'm extremely satisfied with McAfee.
Are you still glad you asked for ideas?
(Do you use P2P file sharing?)
