Hopefully the right place. I have a HP Notebook, installed McAfee after I got it. I'm not sure if it comes preinstalled but I have HP Assistant in the right corner with a blue question mark and two exclamation marks. It's telling me to install HP Orbit and a bunch of other things, but when I google HP Assistant I see results saying they've got a virus from it, it's shady or it has 3rd party. Is it incredibly important?Are its updates different from Windows Updates? I've been using an iPad mainly for the past few years so haven't dealt with this for a while (barely sure what bloatware is lol).
