Question about Computers & Internet
I just went into configure on the computer and files and intentionally disabled then enabled system guard manually and it took care of the problem. Also after I enabled I just minimized the screen on my desktop for a few hours to see if it would disable by itself but it was ok. I noticed when you place the dot in enable or disable a little highlighted box (almost looks like a perforated box) circles around the dot, If you click next to it, it disappears. I know this is a late post, but I just now was having this same problem.

I would check if your computer is running Anit-spyware like AVG.
I have the same problem, Mcafee is turning it self off because there is another program to take its place.
I have SpySweeper for MSN and Mcafee does the same thing, but before I had Spysweeper, Mcafee worked just fine. So I deleted ALL traces of the former Spysweeper and again Mcafee worked just fine.
There is nothing wrong with Mcafee, it can not compete with others so instead of looking at Anti-spyware code, that most do have Spyware code, so each other would say it spyware.
You can click "Ignore" on the Mcafee, just as long you have another Anti-spyware program running.
Now to fix it you have to go to the reg and remove all codes and prorgams with the any other Anti-spyware that was removed. I use the following to fix all REG codes:
http://www.ccleaner.com and check to see how tight you have your firewall set to also.

Go to McAfee - log into online chat. They will download and install a patch. Took care of the problem immediately.

Have you tried running the Virtual Technician on McAfee's Website. If there are problems with the software it will usually find and fix it.
All honesty, next time try Norton 360, I have it on 9 computers and it give me no problems. Some are XP home, XP professional and Vista Home Premium. Norton 360 is a little pricey but it is great!
I found McAfee slows the computers down because the files are so big.

My systemguard keeps disabling as well. I used Virtual Tech and I still have the problem. I also did a system restore and it didn't help. I'm fed up with McAfee
