Uninstall McAfee and install one of the free Antiviruses such as AVG, AVAST or Microsoft Security Essentials. Use Windows Firewall. Just turn on Windows Firewall in the Control Panel.

I have windows defender as well as mcafee anti virus is this a good thing? also i can get free security on virgin media would this be as good as mcafee when the current subscription runs out?

Generally you can leave Windows Defender on but yes, a real antivirus is recommended. Both Mcafee (from personal experience) and Virgin Media Security (from the reviews I've read) tend to slow your computer down or be ineffective. If you want a free solution, go for Microsoft Security Essentials
or AVGfree, although AVG is also a resource hog. If you don't mind paying for quality, Eset NOD32 is the best and most lightweight you'll find.
Avira is also a good choice, but I personally recommend ESET.

I purchase a new computer, a 1 mo. service of Mcafee came in the bundle. Is that going to affect the Macaffe I am getting with mt ATT internet plan ?

Yes. Use "Add/Remove Programs" to uninstall that "trial-version" software. Then, install the software provided by AT&T. Or, install the Microsoft Security Essentials *FREE* anti-virus:
which can be used with _any_ Internet Service Provider, not just with AT&T.
