How do I repair a Windows Server 2012 PDC

Recently installed windows server 2012, everything worked great, all shares show up with the users profiles and worked like a charm. I installed Mcafee end point and  Mozy back up software. After the restart the server hang for an hour and would not log in. After I used the start menu and choose " log in with the last good configuration" The server then booted  to a log in screen, however when I try to log in I get the following message "The security database on the server does not have a computer account for this workstation trust relationship" I have seen a lot of articles around the net to solve other issues with the same message but the noe addresses this particular issue since I cannot get pass the log in screen of the server. How do I repair this issue ?

Boot up in safe mode

Set the mcafee and other third party services to disabled

I hit f8 and choose safe mode , however,it does not boot into save mode; instead it just reboots the system and hangs again at the windose "please wait" screen.
Thomas GrassiSystems AdministratorCommented:
When you hit f8 you got the Safe Mode Menu screen correct?

If it did not go into safe mode then your selection did not take effect.

I have seen this a couple of times restart and select again

Reboot the computer.
Start tapping the F8 key as soon as your manufacturer’s logo appears.
This will open the Windows Advanced Options Menu.
If you begin tapping the F8 key too soon, some computers display a "keyboard error" message.
To resolve this, restart the computer and try again.
If you see the Windows logo, it means you did not start pressing the F8 button soon enough.
You will need to reboot and try again.

I tried several times and it never would boot to safe mode even though i was able to select it each time, it would just reboot again.
Anyway I got to the bottom of it or t least to where i realize that i should not waste any more time on it. The problem was with McAfee, and after speaking to several of their they could not come up with an answer. I even uninstalled the OS and reinstalled, omitting any other third part software.. as soon as I installed McAfee the exact problem happened.  I was finally told by a McAfee upper level tech that some of the firewall features on their software was not compatible with win 2012  as that time. Solution -- Use a different antivirus!! Everything works Great, Server been up and running for about 6 weeks, no issues.

No one had an answer to solve the issue and it was solved by my research and conversations with MCAfee.
