Redundant Purchase?

New laptop.  I purchased both McAfee Internet Security AND Virus Scan.  Is this a redundant purchase?  Seems like I installed the Virus Scan software then when I installed the Internet Security, it removed the Virus Scan software and replaced it with the internet security.  So now what?

Moved this to Consumer > General Discussion.  VirusScan is another name for the antivirus portion of the Internet Security that you bought, it can't be purchased alone.

If you want reassurance go to your account page at log in and check.

If necessary speak with Customer Service through the link below and they will sort out any anomalies.

It's free by phone or online chat.

As Peter suggested Log in to McAfee's My Account ; at the top right Click on Arrow facing down and choose Subscriptions from Drop Down. You will find the list of Active Subscriptions for your account.
