Why is McAfee Core Firewall Service installed with VSE 8.8 Patch 10
I noticed that after I upgraded my VSE 8.8 Patch 7 machines to Patch 10 I now have some new services including McAfee Firewall Core Service. It points to mfefire.exe. What is this and why is a VSE patch installing a firewall?

VSE patch 10 has newest VSCore that comes with InstallAll feature:
"The InstallAll feature deploys all the kernel-level drivers required to provide security services, for example, regulating access to registries, processes, and memory, to the products that use VSCore. This prevents incompatibilities between older and newer versions of drivers."
It is normal to see this drivers installed although VSE doesn't use them.
