Mcafee Security Scan Plus keeps popping up

The Security Scan Plus window keeps popping up, completes a scan (all green), and then after i close the window it pops up again and does a scan (ad infinitum).

I checked settings and is says scan is Mcafee scheduled for "Sunday at 2:64AM" - what? that is not a valid time, and i try to change it manually and it does not accept the change.

Is this a bug or am i infected !?

Security scan plus is a free program tagged onto Adobe or similar downloads. Just remove the program normally via Windows and use your livesafe scan options as you say you have it. Security scan plus is only there to invite you to buy the full McAfee suite.
