Application Error in setup.exe

Each time I install or uninstall software on my NT4.0 workstation I get the following error message:  isset_se caused an access violation in setup.exe at 0x800000008.  Choices offered are close or ignore.  The install or uninstall appears to proceed without problem after selecting ignore.

If you have any anti-virus software running, disable it before you try to install any software.

I have don that ... as a matter of fact I got the setup error when I attempted to install McAfee.  I had uninstalled the previous version (through Windows add/remove programs) and then started the setup of version 4.02.  It doesn't seem to matter if I select close or ignore - the message goes away and the setup application continues.
