Exit Outlook. Find and delete the file EXTEND.DAT. Reopen Outlook; the problem should have gone away.

Another solution is:

1. In Outlook, on the Tools menu, click Options.
2. Click the Other tab, click Advanced Options, and then click Add-In Manager.
3. Click to clear the Exchange Scan check box, click OK, and then click OK.
4. Click OK.

There is also a hot fix available from McAfee to resolve this issue.

McAffee Scanemal.dll

Hey Buddy, I'm having the same problem after upgrading McAffee. This is a quick fix to stop the msg from popping up. But this also means that the emails are not scanned.
