McAfee Process Validation Service (mfevtps.exe) - Stuck at starting

Hi All,

I'm not an expert in PC, so be gentle.

As per subject, McAfee Process Validation Services (mfevtps.exe) [referred in process window], is stuck at starting. Without it able to start, it prevented my other processes to run. This always happened after I've restarted my PC or after cold boot. I've found the culprit and try to stop the process, after that my whole other processes able to successfully run. But, it can't be this way the whole time. Tried reinstall, no joy. Tried McAfee Virtual Technician, the application stuck at initializing.

At one point, windows didn't allow me to stop the process. So I ran AVG scan in safemode, and I'm able to get back to the point where I can stop the process.

I can use my Internet and some application if I didn't stop mfevtps.exe process.

Video i've recorded about my problem as attached.
