Andreamstowe we understand your questions and concerns. I would like to mentions two things.
1. Just as whs has stated you disk management looks normal.
2. McAfee is always one update away from screwing up your computer. McAffe is living on a very, very old reputation of being a quality product. It no longer can back up that reputation.

I think you are confusing 'boot records' and 'partitions'. It would be a lengthy explanation - so I will skip that. Just be assured that your system looks OK.

Different manufacturers make different setups. Some add a tools partition. That's probably the least important. The System partition and the C partition you need to run the PC. Don't touch those. And the recovery partition you need if you ever want to reinstall the system - although making frequent images is a better strategy in order to recover from a fatal crash.
