    McAfee Doubled installs?


      Currently my desktop shows two McAfee icons were installed,  I have no idea when or why the second showed up.
      The original was McAfee Security Center,  Properties Target shows "C:\Program Files\McAfee.com\Agent\mcagent.exe"    with no 'Start In'
      The second one is McAfee Scan Plus, Properties Target shows     "C:\Program Files\McAfee Security Scan\3.11.474\McUICnt.exe" SecurityScanner.dll ,

      it's 'Start in:'  is  "C:\Program Files\McAfee Security Scan\3.11.474"


      First question what & why was that second installed?.   I assume that showed up when an update was performed.

      I know there's many basic functions of the product,  but what is difference? I.E. what does each do?


      Second question,  Why are there two "mfefire.exe"  running?   (via taskmgr)   Both are from the same path name.
      Doe this have anything to do with the two different icons?
