I see that you are a brand new computer user, but is the computer new as well?
If so I am surprised that the shop/vendor where you got the computer from has pre-installed both McAfee and Nortons.
You need to be sure exactly what McAfee and Nortons components you have. They both do separate components like anti-virus, firewall, clean-up utilities, etc, as well as complete suites of protective software, and it would be most unusual for a vendor to install 2 firewalls, and/or 2 anti-virus applications onto one computer.
So, maybe you only have Norton's firewall, and McAfee anti-virus, or vice versa.
You need an anti-virus, and a firewall. Personally I would not use either Norton's or McAfee, but that is just my choice.
Let us know what you have got, then perhaps we can give you proper advice.
