MCPR wont remove Security Scan Plus as that is not part of any protection software, merely an advertising tool that downloads (if you don't monitor it) with, amongst others, Adobe products.
You have to remove it in the normal way - Control Panel > Programs and Features.
I should have added, MCPR completely removes consumer protection products. So if you want them, you'll need to reinstall from your online account.
Moved to Consumer General section as a better spot for it.
Thanks for quick response
I have purchased Total protection but could not install it. I have downloaded McAfeeSetup-AutoLogin from website (Download my purchase product).
I am getting "NSIS Error ..Error Launching Installer"
This is, I assume, after you've removed both Security Scan Plus using Control Panel > Programs and Features and the other software using MCPR?
I also assume you rebooted. Is your system totally up to date and, if this is Windows 10, please make another browser than Edge the default, - use IE11 or Firefox/Chrome etc
Restart and retry the installation.
I want to install Avast and Mcafee antivirus,
will it conflict if i use both.

Contrary to one's belief and intentions, yes running two Anti-Virus Applications at the same time will cause conflicts. Each program's 'Realtime Scan Module' will actually work against each other, if you will. Leaving you at risk for exploitations/infections.
