McAfee Questions/Concerns

This morning I went to use my computer and I was prompted with a McAfee screen that said my computer was not fully protected. I therefore, tried to fix it, but was then told that some files/etc. to run this were missing and I would have to reintall. While this was happening, some updates were being installed; which I then restarted the computer and hoped that this would fix the problem.

To no avail, my computer was still not fully protected; so I then searched for updates to which I had to restart the computer before I could do that (do not know why). Anyway, when the computer rebooted I searched and installed updates and then restarted once more. Once it rebooted this time, it now shows that my computer is fully protected.

However, after this, I was given a McAfee pop-up that said something was trying to do a registry change; I blocked it and later another one popped up:

Drive Letter Access Component & SonicStage Application

- Sonic Stage Solutions & Sonic Corporation

Now... my problem/concern is that the McAfee components that were missing (i.e. computer not fully protected) and the registry change request are somehow connected and that these events may occur again. Do I have anything to worry about, what may be the problem, and what exactly is a registry change?

Thank you very much...
