Mcafee Live Safe / Mcafee Security Scan

I have Mcafee Live Safe installed but there is also a Mcafee Security Scan program installed (not by me). Is it safe to uninstall this program?

You must have missed unticking the option to install that along with (for example) Adobe Flash or Reader etc.

Always closely monitor software downloads.

Simply uninstall it from Control Panel > Programs and Features as it's an advertising tool and offers no security of its own.

As Ex_Brit says, You can also read this Removal Guide on why you have it/and instructions to remove it.

Remove "McAfee Security Scan Plus" (Uninstall Guide)
