Turns red and requires renewal, but different from others

My McAfee turns red and requires renewal of my subscription, which should not be expiring yet, but in a different way than others have posted.

I've noticed that it happens when downloading updates, but not when checking for updates and not finding any.

It also seems to happen randomly, in addition to when downloading updates.

When I restart my computer the issue fixes itself, but ends up reoccurring again later.

This popped up for the first time yesterday and I'm running Vista.

Nevermind. I reinstalled McAfee and the problem seems fixed.
