Check KB74420 to start with.  Any change to a run immediately task will cause it to run again.  Upgrading an epo version may also upgrade an agent extension version, but also with the large number of schema changes on 5.10, it would also update tasks. 

If you went through the upgrade checklist (kb71825) before the upgrade, it tells you to disable those.

Disable run immediately client tasks: 
When the McAfee Agent extension is upgraded in ePO, previously executed tasks that are configured to "Run Immediately" execute again on the next agent-server communication. This action can cause various products to be redeployed to clients. To prevent this issue, before you upgrade, disable any tasks configured to "Run Immediately." For more information, see KB74420.

Are those tasks scheduled to 'Run Immediately'?
