I am running Windows 7 Home Premium on a 560 Dell and I have McAfee AntiVirus Plus installed and running.  Often I will get a popup window saying that McAfee 32 bit helper has stopped working and needs to close.  I will dismiss it and everything seems to work fine later.  My question is what is this thing, do I need it and what does it do?  I have searched for answers to no avail, so I'm here asking again.

moved from Windows 7 to Anti-Virus, Anti-Malware, and Privacy Software

My previous experience with McAfee is that often other modules, startups/services are installed along with Anti-virus; however, I may be wrong about your McAfee.  Do you know what McAfee startups/services, modules, are installed and running?
