Why am I paying for VirusScan Plus AND 3-user Internet Security?

I get emails talking about auto-renewal, and I renewed a month or so ago. I got another auto-renewal today saying it's almost time. I went to my account and realized I have two different products and now I'm not sure why or how many times I've paid this way, or if I have to have both?!

McAfee VirusScan Plus Expires: 6/22/2014 (Windows)


3-User McAfee Internet Security Expires: 9/20/2013 (Windows)

So, I renewed the 3-user, but what is the difference between both of these? They're both on the same account so its not a mistake of different emails.

I renew when I'm notified by McAfee, but I'm feeling a little annoyed by this lol.


Thank you,
