UK user still on 11.0.649 and waiting for an update.... come on McAfee sort it out
McAfee did not automatically update the fix for the desktop icon issue, I had to reinstall the software myself. Then, the fix did not work until I manually changed the Registry. Makes me wonder if they cannot even update their own software correctly what are they doing with the critical anti-virus updates?
OK that's too bad as it certainly should have worked OK and sorry it didn't. A small number of people have reported they need the registry fix after the update came in and this far we have no idea why. This update had nothing to do with protection which all come in normally.
Technical Support should be able to fix it. It's free via phone or online chat, see the link under Useful Links at the top of this page.

Thank you for responding. Step 2 in Jai's reply at https://community.mcafee.com/message/234066#234066 appears to have fixed the problem.
It would be hefpful if https://community.mcafee.com/docs/DOC-3361 was updated to include that information. I would not have needed to post a question anywhere if that article had been updated.
