Is this a scam? Techmaster

I received an email from McAfee regarding a Security Check Up. In the email, it said that I could get PC Optimising Software for free so thinking that's great, I downloaded it.

Only, when I received the confirmation email, it was in Spanish.

I got the original email in English with dollar pricing.

Is this legitimate software and the confirmation email being in Spanish just a mistake or was this a scam?

I have removed the program entirely and done a deep clean.

Hi @TechnicalBat,

Greetings from McAfee.

It is a legitimate email for a one time free tune up of your PC. If you want to make use of this service follow the instructions in the email.

Thanks for your quick response @krishna55 

I have taken another picture of the email I received in Spanish. This is what confused/concerned me.
