CPU usage: the percentage of processing power being consumed. Measuring CPU usage is not precise, so what is displayed here is an approximation. It could be 2-3% more or less than what is displayed.

If you're cutting it that close on the actual ammount of RAM needed then it is best you Uninstall the program using it's own uninstall engine or thru the add/remove in the CP.

Try Add/Remove Programs with the Control Panel, or look in the McAffee Menu folder for an uninstall.

I think you're referring to 32/31 megabytes of memory or RAM. If your system only shows 31MB, the other 1MB is likely being used for video memory. Nothing you install or uninstall with affect that number. You might be able to increase your video memory which would decrease your system memory, but you can't get the other 1MB back unless you disable on-board video and install a separate video card.

I doubt that one megabyte of memory would significantly affect performance. Uninstalling McAfee will almost definitely help, though, since it's probably using a very high amount of system resources. I highly suggest you get more memory for your computer. 32MB isn't very much.
