Virtual Technician is broken at the moment because one of its servers is down so don't rely on that.  Security Scan Plus probably relies on the same servers so just as unreliable.

If your McAfee SecurityCenter is showing green and telling you that all is OK, that's all you need to worry about.

McAfee Security Scan Plus should be uninstalled - via Control Panel in the usual manner.   It is merely a sales tool that is an optional download with some products, most notably Adobe Flash etc. etc.   Perhaps you missed the fact that it was included with a download from them or another vendor.
