Windows 7: Questions Regarding Startup Items

My understanding that many businesses or larger organization use the enterprise/business McAfee. For example if one was using Windows 7 Enterprise the security needs for programs, settings, and security would be a lot different than one using Windows 7 Pro at home.

What Windows 7 are you using, because it's not in your specs.

McAfee takes an ultra-comprehensive approach to security that taxes the system heavily. That probably makes sense if you're an organization with people who have no idea what they're doing using computers, or who aren't motivated to care. But for a competent user, it's overkill which in your case will cause the machine to run slower and hotter.

I second Panda. I deploy it on many laptops and regard it highly. The free version also includes URL filtering, optionally.
