Just bought a new laptop,comes with a 15 month subscription to McAfee security centre.
My question is..what other software should I install to keep my laptop working as smoothly as possible?

Thanks in advance

Spyware blaster as a blocker click here

Malwarebytes as a backup antimal/spyware scanner click here

Concur with send an email to Fruit Bat /\0/\ Fruit Bat /\0/\

Re Anti virus, I suggest Avira, MS Security Essentials or Avast - all free but only install one. (When Mc Afee runs out)
Plus PC Tools firewall (Free)
and: Spywareblaster (tries to prevent malware)
also Superantispyware and Malawarebytes as Malware scanners - all free.
Plus CCleaner as Fruit Bat /\0/\
