I use Windows 7 and just installed McAfee Total Protection. I have an older version of McAfee Security Scan Plus already installed. Should I uninstall it or keep it as a "go with" to the Total Protection?

There is no reason to keep two security applications on your computer, primarily because of compatibility and secondly because of the performance decrease. Also, McAfee isn't a good solution to keep your computer protected since there have been numerous cases where trojans and malware installed even with the software active, however, if you trust it, uninstall the Security Scan Plus and leave only the Total Protection since it contains all the necessary modules to protected a malware or virus infection.
