McAfee Migration Tool Prompt?

I hope I am posting in the appropiate area? Shortly after my daily Anti Virus Daily update,(Engine Version 1654) I recieved a McAfee prompt to allow access to "McAfee Migration Tool" I am currently on:

McAfee Security Center

12.8.750

McAfee Personal Firewall Plus

13.8.706

The file can be found in-C:\programFiles\McAfee\Msc\McMigrator.exe

I am curious as to what this pertains to? After searching,it seems to be associated with "Firewall" permissions? It has been added to my "Firewall Permission list" with "Full Access". I might add that I have my "Traffic Controller" set to

"Monitored Access"

Windows7 Home Premium

Service Pack1

Internet Explorer 10- Fully updated

Any insight on this matter, would be sincerely appreciated.

Thank you in advance.....CatDaddy

Without asking support I have no idea but I would assume it helps with migration of settings when the software upgrades from one version to the next.

That prompt, was it from Windows Firewall by any chance?  I seem to recall seeing a similar one occurring just once.

Locked that 1.

I assume it is just there for upgrades when they happen.
