Installation won't continue after reboot. (?)

Quite a simple problem but I can't seem to find a solution. Just formatted my computer and after reinstalling a lot of programs, I went for McAfee Security Center. After the installer downloaded and started installing the antivirus, I was asked to reboot my computer in order to continue the process. Here's the deal: the installer won't continue the process after the reboot.

I downloaded the repair tool and confirmed there where some process still not implemented, as well as some missing files. It's been a while since I last formatted my computer but never had this problem before. I tried to remove the incomplete installation and reinstall to no avail: the installation won't continue after reboot.

I'm currently using Windows 7, all drivers updated, as well as basic programs like c++ virtual studio, dotnetFX, directX, etc.
