I have just bought a new pc which came with Mcafee security,since this is installed should i turn off windows firewall and antivirus.

McAfee Security Centre will automatically disable Windows firewall.

You seem to be referring to Windows anti-virus. If you are, there is no such beast.

However, if you are referring to some other AV program, you should completely un-install it and let the McAfee AV get on with the job.

Two AV programs on one laptop will conflict with each other.
