Would probably be a good idea to uninstall the Norton to prevent conflicts.
Security Scan Plus was most likely added accidentally when you installed or updated an Adobe product (for example).
See the attached picture to show what I mean (click to enlarge). It's an option that one must uncheck if not wanted.
It's merely a promotional tool to tell you how good your current protection is and can be uninstalled in the normal manner through the Control Panel/Add or Remove Programs (XP), Programs/Uninstall a Program (Vista/Windows 7).
Look for 'McAfee Security Scan Plus' in the Program list.
I've noticed Norton and other companies employing the same tactics, so it isn't exclusively a McAfee 'feature'.
As Ron has stated you must remove Norton security or McAfee wont function correctly - I'm surprised McAfee installs with it already there..
Remove in the normal manner and then run this....

Removing Norton did the trick.
Removing Norton did the trick. Thanks!
I never installed Norton (a free trial came with the computer) so do I need to run the Norton removal tool?
Well then Norton was already installed I guess so it's best to run the removal tool anyway. It wont do any harm.
You'll also have to remove McAfee Security Scan as it's merely an online check to recommend what you need in the way of security software.
Then you can install whatever security software you wish to have.
