I'm not really sure if that description was the best to use!

Recently had to renew my McAfee Security Center, and I encountered the problem of it slowing my laptop down. Anyway, during my fiddlings (as I was trying to get my laptop back up to speed), I uninstalled it, leaving my laptop unprotected.

So then I went and re-installed it, 'cause at the moment I'm of the mind that any protection is good, even if it does slow my laptop wa-ay down. This time though I only installed some bits of it.

It's the latest version of the Security Center, and I let it install Data Backup, Virus Scan, Security Centre, and the Personal Firewall.

Firstly, is this enough to protect my laptop? And secondly, does anyone know if there's a way I can "lighten" it some more?

Any help/advice is really appreciated, and thanks in advance!^^
