Hi there, just to clarify my thinking. So your computer came with your McAfee Software pre-installed and is functioning fine, and your subscription is active ? So actually your primary concerns are that your husband noticed a (Norton Icon) even though neither of you 'Intentionally' installed the product?
Since then he has deleted it from your system? Are you experiencing any adverse effects/issues?
It just so happens that late last night I was Auto-updated to the latest Adobe Flash Player ( v18.104.22.168 ) Is there by chance the Norton Product found on your machine was (Norton Security Scan)? Which is a similar product comparatively speaking, to McAfee Security Scan Plus.
Quite often when one downloads Adobe products, one may inadvertently installed products as such which are (Bundled) with the Product itself as a 'Optional Offer' Simply make certain that they are not selected before continuing.
If you are comfortable that you no longer have any suspected Security Software onboard, and your McAfee Software is performing properly. Then I see no reason to be concerned. However if that is not the case, please apprise me/us as we have additional Tools/Programs to suggest you to check out.
